A wide range of physical, mechanical, and electrical testing on elastomeric, rubber, plastic and silicone materials provides an objective understanding of the material. Within our ISO 17025 laboratories we routinely undertake independent measurement of material properties and composition to support research and development activities, for regulatory requirements or OEM submissions.
Performance of many elastomeric materials changes significantly across the temperature range it will see in service. This is a major consideration for design engineers, as the polymer or the constituents of the mix reach transition at varying temperatures. Our experts can advise on appropriate test methodology where environmental conditions such as temperature, pressure and contaminants are factors in polymer performance over its service life.
Experts in Customized Testing
We specialize in combining test methods and creating individual test programs based on your requirements to fully investigate material suitability to a specific application. We can also work with you to develop a custom test method, should it be needed.
Sample Preparation Support
Our extensive sample preparation capabilities include molding and forming test specimens from most states including granules, powder or extraction of specimens from a final product. You can browse each section listed on the right to see our full range of tests.
