Elastomers - Testing and expertise whithin rubber and rubber products

We can perform all common tests and analyses on rubber materials and products as well as customized tests for special areas.

Examples of tests performed by us are:

  • Tensile properties at room temperature and in heat/cold (eg ISO 37)
  • Tear strength (eg ISO 34)
  • Hardness Shore, IRHD (eg ISO 48)
  • Tensile set (eg ISO 2285)
  • Compression set in room temperature, heat and cold (eg ISO 815)
  • Determination of amount of carbon black
  • Ozone testing (cracking) (eg ISO 1431)
  • Resistance to liquids volume change, weight change, hardness change and change in tensile properties (eg ISO 1814)
  • Accelerated ageing in heat, UV and climate
  • Chemical analysis
  • Determination of stress relaxation in air, nitrogen as well as different liquids up to 200°C. Our containers can withstand a pressure up to 3 bar, which means that testing can be performed in liquids close to their boiling point. Tests have been performed in oils, glycols, ASTM oils and nitrogen. We can also perform stress relaxation tests in cyclic cold/heat. (eg ISO 3384)

We perform different kinds of test on all kinds of seals used in, for example, buildings, automotive and other areas of use. RISE can also design product specific tests according to the customers wishes. We can offer material testing, durability and estimation of long term performance. We also perform damage analyses on rubber products and materials. Stress relaxation test is a method that is becoming increasingly important for service life prediction of seals in different environments.

Beside testing according to standard, we can also perform customized tests for specific needs. We can also make qualitative and quantitative analysis to determine the composition of a rubber materials.

RISE participates in CEN- and ISO-standardization which means that we are well-informed in testing methods and requirements in swedish, european and international standards.
