Proto-Tech Fatigue Cycler, Thermal Cycler and Shrinkage Stress Analyser

School of Dentistry, University of Birmingham
Dr Will Palin
These instruments reproduce the temperature cycling which occurs in the mouth to evaluate dental materials, and measure stress and shrinkage in polymerisation of dental composites.
  • Thermal cycling 0 – 80 ºC
  • Fatigue testing loading up to 400 N with up to four parallel samples
