Brittleness

Smithers Rapra have a wealth of experience in determining the low temperature properties of vulcanised and thermoplastic rubbers.

This test determines the lowest temperature at which materials do not exhibit brittle failure or the temperature where 50% of test pieces fail under specified conditions.

Sample Preparation

The presence of our extensive samples preparation capabilities, which include the thickness reduction of rubber by slitting/buffing,  ensures we are able to test a wide variety of materials and product forms.

Standards and Accreditation

Smithers Rapra are ISO 17025 accredited to test rubber materials to various ASTM, BS and ISO testing standards.
