DSS - Dimension Stability System WSD & HSA

The DSS Dimension Stability System is a modular device, which allows the measurement of the dimension stability of paper, board and other materials under one-sided contact with the test liquid, e.g. water or melamine resin (module WSD02 Wet Stretch Dynamics). In addition, the dimension stability under the influence of heat can be tested (Module HSA Heat Shrinkage Analyzer).

Product description

As a modular system, the DSS combines the measurement of the wet stretch and heat shrinkage. With just a few clicks, the modules can be changed, which allows a fast and reliable determination of the wet stretch behavior.
