Compressive tests are used to investigate the compressive behaviour of test specimens and for determining compressive strength, compressive modulus, and other aspects of the compressive stress/strain relationship under defined conditions.
Our labs are equipped with six universal testing machines, covering a calibrated load range of 1N upto 250kN. Our testing machines are supported by a variety of laser and video technology and the latest in contact extensometry.
Our extensive sample preparation facilities can test a huge vareity of materials and product forms and are equipped with a CNC machine, on-site moulding, and slitting and buffing equipment to reduce rubber thickness.
Additional environmental chambers emable our experts to conduct testing in a temperature range from -50°C to 200°C.
Standards and Accreditation
Smithers Rapra are able to test rubber materials to BS ISO 7743.
