A specimen is placed in a specimen holder or attached to a test head. In method 2, the specimen is passed over the burner for a defined period of time and then withdrawn again. In method 3, the specimen is drawn over the propane gas burner, which has a temperature of approx. 800 °C, at a speed of 60±5 mm/s. This is done in various burner positions. The burner can be moved in depth for this purpose. The specimen is moved by a spindle drive on a linear guide.
