About the Labs

Our labs are equipped with six universal testing machines, covering a calibrated load range from 1N to 250kN. Our testing machines are supported by an LVDT measuring jog, which ensures extension is measured as accurately as possible. The addition of environmental chambers to our machines enables us to test over the temperature range of -50°C up to 200°C.

Our extensive sample preparation facilities can test a huge variety of materials and product forms and are equipped with a CNC machine, on-site molding, and slitting and buffing equipment to reduce rubber thickness.
