Test Description:
A sample of 6” x ½” (152 x 12.7 mm) is prepared by means of a sample punch. It is inserted into the sample inlet at the top of the instrument. When the start button is pressed, it is introduced and molded by the heated fluting plates. The sample is then ejected at the bottom. The flute plates return to their initial position. It is important that the sample has the correct width of ½” (12.7 mm).
