Tensile Testing of Polymers and Composites Materials

Tensile testing of plastics, composites and constituents using ASTM, ISO and other test methods are expertly performed at Intertek.

Tensile tests measure the force required to break a plastic sample specimen and the extent to which the specimen stretches or elongates to that breaking point. Tensile tests produce stress-strain diagrams used to determine tensile modulus. The resulting tensile test data can help specify optimal materials, design parts to withstand application forces, and provide key quality control checks for materials.

Tensile tests for plastics provide:

  • Tensile Strength (at yield and at break)
  • Tensile Modulus
  • Tensile Strain
  • Elongation and Percent Elongation at yield
  • Elongation and Percent Elongation at break

to see how Intertek can help your organization with Tensile Testing of Polymers and Composites Materials.
