Plastics Test Applications

Plastics & polymers undergo a wide range of tests. These tests are necessary in several industries to ensure the integrity of products and packaging.

Common plastics and polymers properties measured include:

  • Tensile strength
  • Impact strength 
  • Bond strength
  • Tear strength
  • Shear strength
  • Fatigue strength / resistance
  • Coefficient of friction (COF)
  • Optical properties; gloss, colour, opacity and haze
  • Melt viscosity (MV)
  • Melt flow Index (MFI)
  • Softening point (VICAT)
  • Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT)
  • Weatherbility

 

AML has a wide range of plastics and polymers test equipment including a selection of Internal Tear Testers (Elmendorf), Tensile Testers, Melt Flow Indexers, Impact Testers, VICAT/HDT Apparatus, Glossmeters, Haze Meters and Falling Dart Impact Testers among others. 

We can also perform these tests to recreate specific environmental conditions for testing with precise environmental chambers, ovens and furnaces. 

Our friendly sales engineers can provide excerpt advice on choosing the correct test equipment for your application and can also provide training on the tester you purchase from us.
