Air-to-air thermal shock

Air-to-Air Thermal Shock

Air-to-air thermal shock tests are useful for the validation of the assembly of certain products, with or without electronic components.


The thermal shock generates internal stresses in the hard and rigid materials which can cause it to burst.

Glass, for example, presents a risk of bursting during a sudden thermal shock.


In the case of rapid cooling, there is a retraction because the core of the material is still hot while its external part is cold. Tension stresses then appear and are capable of causing cracks or the bursting of a product.


In the case of rapid heating, cracking occurs due to the temperature difference.
