It deals with a viscometric fixed point (value of temperature) at the viscosity η=107,65dPas.
The Littleton-Point describes the temperature when glass perceptibly begins to deform under one’s own weight. The measurement is performed on glass filaments with a set diameter of 0.65 mm that are pointedly heated up in a standardized stove. The velocity of extension can be interpreted.
