Determining the material properties of your polymer and plastic products, ensuring that they meet the demands of their specific application.

Determination of material properties of polymers and plastics is critical in all stages of product development. Mechanical and physical testing provides developers with a better understanding of their product and introduces greater quality control for product release. Testing polymers for their material properties also provides valuable data when conducting failure analysis investigations and support in any potential litigation.

With vast experience in the polymers and plastics industries, our scientists have the knowledge to help you improve and qualify your materials and products.

Our polymer physical and mechanical testing services include:

  • Tensile testing
  • Compressive testing
  • Flexural
  • Shear
  • Peel adhesion
  • Coefficient of friction
  • Density
  • Melt flow index
  • Environmental Stress Cracking Resistance (ESCR)
  • Impact resistance (Izod, Charpy)
  • Brittleness
  • Tear resistance
  • Chemical exposure
  • Elevated and sub-ambient mechanical properties
  • Thermal Expansion
