Mechanical Testing of Polymers and Plastics
Mechanical testing of polymers and composites.
Intertek mechanical testing for polymer materials includies tests for plastics, 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 programs, research and development. Furthermore Intertek also offers failure analysis. Intertek provides quick and accurate test results for one test, multiple lot, 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
