What is Thermal Shock Testing?

Thermal shock testing simulates a products life cycle by exposing the product to rapid changes of temperatures ranging from -60°C to 170°C. This is completed by using a dual climate chamber that will transfer the product from one temperature extreme to the other, in less than 30 seconds. The number of cycles, soak times and temperature extremes are determined by the nature of the products intended use. These parameters can be defined by the customer or determined by an associated test specification.

If you require Intertek to conduct a thermal profile development to determine saturation times of your product, Intertek’s engineers are well versed in this process.
