Compressive testing is used to investigate the compressive behavior of test specimens. It determines the compressive strength, compressive modulus, and other aspects of the compressive stress and strain relationship.
- BS EN 604— Plastics. Determination of compressive properties
- BS ISO 7743— Rubber, vulcanized or thermoplastic -- Determination of compression stress-strain properties
About the Labs
We have six universal testing machines which cover a calibrated load range of 1N up to 250kN. These are supported by a variety of laser, video and the latest in contact extensometry. Using environmental chambers, we can test over the temperature range of -50°C up to 200°C.
We have extensive sample preparation facilities and on-site molding capabilities. These give us the flexibility to test a huge variety of materials and product forms.
