Polymers, Polymer Composites, and Elastomers Testing

Our extensive materials engineering capabilities expands across a wide range of plastic and polymeric materials, elastomers, composites, and manufacturing processes. Equipped with state-of-the-art testing laboratories and specialized tools, our engineers and technicians can expertly identify the characteristics and properties of many non-metallic materials.

Our capabilities include:

We use advanced techniques to test the mechanical responses of materials under various conditions such as temperature, climate, impact, multi-axial tensile, fatigue, and chemical exposure to determine their effects on material behaviors including creep, physical and chemical aging, stress cracking, stress relaxation, strain, and others. Our engineers apply this essential material data to establish the most applicable materials to use and to verify that the material will perform as specified.

Our ISO 17025:2017 accredited polymer laboratory is equipped with a variety of thermal analysis testing instruments including TGA , DSC , DMA , TMA and FTIR. In addition to the ability to fully characterize polymers, polymer composites and elastomers, we can conduct exposure–based aging investigations as a function of applied stress/strain, temperature and time. Standard exposure-based tests can include a combination of sustained and variable stress/strain in contact with operating fluid, explosive decompression and high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) aging in corrosive media, sterilization, physical aging, ultraviolet weathering, and simulated life cycle testing.
