Rubber Testing Solutions

Posted on July 12, 2016

Testing of rubber materials commonly requires test machines capable of measuring a very high strain in addition to testing at temperatures above and below ambient.

Some of the most common test types within rubber testing are tear, tensile testing,compression testing and relaxation testing. These test types are among some of the many types of tests that can be performed on our high-precision test machines.

We offer extended column machines ideal for rubber applications that are compatible with long travel contacting and non-contacting extensometers.

Thermal chambers for rubber testing between -70°C and +300°C are also available for the study of material properties at temperatures other than ambient.

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. Our involvement in the rubber industry stretches back decades, leaving us with an extensive experience in the field of rubber testing.

Typical applications for rubber testing include:
– Automotive rubber parts
– Belts
– Condoms
– Conveyor belts
– Fitness / Sports / Playground surfaces
– Industrial rubber products
– O Rings
– Rubber lined parts
– Rubber mats / rubber–backed carpets / rubber underlay
