Testing of polymers
Undestanding the mechanical properties of polymers and plastic materials is critical in allowing product developers to know how their material performs in the desired application. Measurlabs offers mechanical testing for all kinds of plastic and polymeric materials ranging from tensile, flexural, compression, shear, creep, dynamic (DMA), friction, scratch, hardness, fatigue, impact properties and many more. Depending on the product, the test method can be chosen accordingly from various testing standards or by using custom methods.
Testing of composites
Composite products often need to obey demanding quality standards of various industries, such as the automotive, construction, and areospace industries. Measurlabs can offer industry specific destructive and non-destructive (NDT) composite testing to determine properties such as tensile strength, hardness, toughness, impact strength and compressive strength, and to detect underlying defects in the structure.
Testing of paper, paperboard and corrugated cardboard
At Measurlabs we offer testing of paper, board and packaging materials according to ASTM, ISO, DIN and TAPPI standards. Our service include measurements such as bursting strength, SCT, ECT, FCT, bending stiffness, internal bond strength, air permeance, tensile strength, optical properties, and many others that are essential in quality assurance of existing products and product development of novel biobased materials.
SCT from paper or board
Bursting strength of paper or board
Tensile strength (TEA) of paper and paperboard
Bending stiffness of corrugated cardboard
Pin adhesion test (PAT) of corrugated cardboard
Flat crush test (FCT) from corrugated cardboard
Edgewise crush test (ECT) from cardboard
Bursting strength of corrugated cardboard
Puncture resistance of corrugated cardboard
Testing of textiles
Textile testing plays an important role in making sure the product works at its designated end-use application and complies to required specifications. Measurlabs offers a wide selection of mechanical testing for textiles, ranging from single fiber tests to testing of readily assembled clothing.
Seam tensile properties of textile products
Coating adhesion of textiles
Tear strength of textiles
Permanent bend strength of textiles by flexometer method
Crease resistance of dry textiles
Force and elongation of textiles – strip method
Seam slippage resistance of textiles
Pilling test for textiles
Abrasion resistance of textiles – Martindale method
Testing of metals
Metallic components, especially those used in construction and load bearing structures, often need to meet strict mechanical specifications. We at Measurlabs offer a wide range of mechanical testing for your metallic products. Some of our methods include for example tensile testing, fatigue testing, coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) determination, creep testing, and hardness testing.
