Don’t Just Test it............HAST it!!!!!
......so when your testing time is critical,
Accelerate it......speed it up by a factor of 10 or more.
Almost every product needs to be tested for long term viability and the time-to-market invariably is always short – so what do you do? You accelerate the test.
And how do you accelerate this test? By utilizing the internationally acclaimed Highly Accelerated Stress Test Chamber, also known as HAST Chamber made by HIRAYAMA.
HAST has been an integral part of most all testing of Materials; be it Semiconductors, Polymer, Ceramic, Glass, Rubber, Paper, Wood, Laminates, LCD’s, Etc. for the past 50 years or so.
And HAST is a vital part of the Reliability Test program under which the temperature and humidity parameters are exercised. In standard environmental testing, the resistance to humidity conditions are generally tested much below 100 °C while HAST or PCT [Pressure Cooker test] is performed at Temperatures of over 110 °C together with a very high density of water vapor leading to Humidity test conditions of over 65 % RH.
The HAST/PCT Chamber creates an atmosphere inside the chamber whereby the difference in water vapor conditions [Pressurized HOT Steam] inside the test materials and outside of the test materials are very high. This condition is used to check the resistance to humidity conditions of the test material under high temperatures.
When you need to test the long-term survivability of a product, or simply need to get to market faster, accelerated testing methodology using the HAST/PCT chamber is the obvious answer. It is a crucial part of a complete reliability testing program, via the accelerated testing technology using HIRAYAMA HAST Chamber, the latest Model PC-422R8.
