Product Testing

We have combined the science of laboratory analysis and technical problem solving for application to a broad range of materials - especially polymer products. Our services extend beyond the standard chemical and physical rubber testing required to meet industry and government specifications.

Our testing protocols apply to not only government compliance and industry standards but also provide technical assistance in the areas of compound formulation, development of new materials and processes, performance evaluations, and failure analysis.

Physical-Mechanical Testing

Our physical testing laboratory conducts mechanical testing for a wide range of industries, including automotive, industrial, consumer, medical, and more. Our mechanical testing programs are developed to help our clients meet ASTM, SAE, ISO, military, and federal specifications. Our rubber and plastics testing laboratory offers tensile, compression, adhesion, abrasion, flexing, aging and performance tests.

Chemical-Analytical Testing

The chemical testing laboratory has the capability to perform rubber and polymer testing. We perform these tests using a wide range of analytical methods and wet chemistry techniques, including compound formulations. This enables us to accurately identify and quantify constituent materials.

Environmental-Fluid Conditioning

Since the automotive and aviation industries continue to impose product qualification requirements, we offer rubber and polymer testing to ensure that these requirements are met. Because these industries require products that must be able to perform under extreme temperature and fluid exposures, our testing is essential to the success of these products.

We have an extensive range of fluids available that can be applied over a wide range of temperatures, components and material samples. Our laboratory accommodates a variety of sample dimensions and various chamber sizes.

Common fluids include, but are not limited to:

  • Biodiesel
  • E10
  • Fuel vapor
  • Hydraulic, brake, and transmission fluids
  • Diesel
  • E85
  • Anti-freeze
  • Aviation fuels and fluids

Common Products / Components

We test a wide range of rubber products and elastomeric materials. Some of the most common rubber products we test include:

  • Tires
  • Hoses
  • Conveyor belts
  • Seals, o-rings and other rubber fittings
  • Medical devices
