Mechanical Testing of Polymers and Plastics
Mechanical testing of polymers and composites.
Intertek mechanical testing for polymer and plastics includes advanced materials, elastomers, composites, films, adhesives, and foams. Plastics and polymers mechanical tests include tensile, tear, shear, flexural, impact, compression, creep, fatigue, friction, wear and adhesion properties analysis.
Intertek provides plastic and polymer mechanical testing for quality control, research and development support, problem solving issues or failure analysis. Intertek provides quick and accurate test results for single tests, multiple samples, or comprehensive laboratory services.
Polymer and Composite mechanical tests do include:
- Tensile, Flexural, Shear, Compressive, and more including Peel, Tear, Poisson’s Ratio, Bearing Bypass, Fracture Toughness - many at Elevatated / Reduced Chamber Testing
- Impact: Multiaxial (Dynatup), Izod & Charpy, Drop Dart, Tensile Impact
- Physical: Density & Specific Gravity, Barcol Hardness, Rockwell Hardness & Shore Hardness
- Friction and Wear: Taber Abrasion, Falex-type Friction & Wear, Gravelometer Chip Test, sliding sled Coefficient of Friction
