Tensile tests measure the force required to break a specimen and the extent to which specimen stretches or elongates to that breaking point, producing stress-strain diagrams used to determine tensile modulus.
The flexural test measures the force required to bend a specimen under three point loading conditions. Flexural modulus is used as an indication of a material’s stiffness when flexed and can be used to select materials for parts that will support loads without flexing.
Analyse moisture and volatile content of polymer materials. Excessive moisture within the material can cause processing problems and degradation of the material.
Hardness Shore D
Determination of materials' resistance to indentation while a defined load is applied on specific area.
Melt Flow Index (MFI)
Determination of materials' flow behaviour at constant shear rate in grams per ten minutes.
Impact CharacteristicsDefines materials notched or unnotched capacity to absorb energy after the force by a swinging pendulum is applied.
Measurement of the mass per volume of a plastic material as a ratio of the mass weight in air and water.
Detailed view on morphological structure of polymers, deafects and particle characterization up to 5 um.
We can test & compare a variety of non-standard specimens for a wide array of process and material problem solving.
