Temperature Testing

Smithers Rapra offers temperature exposure and environmental testing for a broad array of products for a variety of industry applications.

Our laboratories use temperature cycling and temperature aging in a variety of product test evaluations. Temperature cycling is used to evaluate the behavior of a product when exposed to varying temperature extremes. In order to accelerate the change in physical properties of a material or product, constant elevated temperature is used. An example of a test after a heat aging is tensile.
