Mechanical testing of polymers
Understanding 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 from various testing standards or by using custom methods.
Mechanical testing of composites
Composite products often need to comply with demanding quality standards of various industries, such as the automotive, construction, and aerospace 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.
Mechanical 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 includes 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 the 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
Mechanical testing of textiles
Textile testing plays an important role in making sure that the product is suitable for its designated end-use application and complies with the 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
Mechanical 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 tensile testing, fatigue testing, coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) determination, creep testing, and hardness testing.
