Plastics Testing Solutions

Posted on July 12, 2016

One of the crucial factors when developing a new plastic product is testing. Only by testing the raw materials, components and finished product in accordance to the relevant standards within plastics testing, are you assured that your plastic product lives up to the high expectations on the market and that it is strong and flexible enough to do the job that it is designed for.

Some of the most common test types within plastics testing are tensile strength, elongation to break, yield strength, modulus, Poisson’s ratio, compression, flexural, shear and friction. All of these test types can be performed on our high-precision test machines.

Our materials testing and force measurement instruments are used by some of the world’s most innovative companies. We specialize in custom materials testing solutions designed to meet the individual needs of our customers.
