Tensile testing of polymers and rubbers

The mechanical properties of a material are very important to understand to be able to design a product that will last for the specific loads of the application. We can for example calculate the welding factor through performing a tensile test of a weld.  


In order to understand whether the polymer and/or rubber material holds a certain load in an application, the mechanical properties of the material are required to be known. These characteristics, such as tensile strength, can be obtained by mechanical testing.

If the mechanical properties of a material are known, it is possible to choose the perfect material for the application based on its strength requirements.


A tensile test machine is used to test the mechanical properties. We have access to a variety of equipment, which equipment used is determined based on the material to be tested and the testing procedure.


After completion of the test, a report is delivered with the test results. Examples of results obtained in the report can be the E-modulus of the material, time to failure and strain. Depending on what is requested, the test is tailored according to the customers wishes.
