Minimum Film Forming Temperature. The new designed temperature gradient plate for measuring the Minimum Film Forming Temperature, MFFT.

DIN ISO 2115 – DIN 53 366 – ASTM D 2354 – ASTM D 1465 – ISO 2115 – ISO/DIS 4622. Look up the appropriate standard for a correct execution of the test.

Product Description

The minimum film forming temperature (MFFT) is the minimum temperature at which synthetic latex, emulsions, polymers or adhesives will coalesce when laid on a substrate as a thin film. The ideal way to determine MFFT is to simultaneously dry the emulsion under test over a range of temperatures to see which is the lowest at which film-forming has occurred. This is best achieved in practice by using the MFFT gradient plate.


The high precision chromium measuring plate is equipped with equispaced temperature sensors beneath the surface. Microprocessor electronic temperature controller with digital temperature display and temperature preselection as well as excess temperature protection.

  • Accuracy: 0,1°C
  • Display of nominal value and actual value of the temperature of the hot and cold side
  • Scroll function to request the temperature measuring stations (MFFT 10 – 10 stations / MFFT 20 – 20 stations)
  • Manual selection of the single temperature measuring stations
  • Integrated membrane drying unit with flowmeter
  • Open table hood made of PMMA – Poly Methylmethacrylaat, max. working temperature 80°C

The flat hinged PMMA cover provides thermal and atmospheric insulation whilst allowing constant visual inspection of an experiment.
