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.

Intertek provides a wide range of tensile test methods to fit your product and materials applications. Elevated and reduced temperature tensile test procedures are available.

 

 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

Intertek provides a wide range of tensile test methods to fit your product and materials applications. Elevated and reduced temperature tensile test procedures are available.
