Importance of dropping and softening point determination
Synthetic but also naturally-occurring products gradually soften as the temperature rises and melt over a relatively large temperature interval. Generally, the dropping or softening point test is one of the few easily achievable methods available to thermally characterize such materials.
Automatic dropping and softening point detection
With the innovative METTLER TOLEDO Dropping Point Systems, you can determine dropping and softening points of pitch, asphalt, polymers, resins, waxes and many more materials with full automatic operation. Standard compliant cups and measurement methods guarantee comparable results.
