IMR's polymer testing lab has extensive experience in various physical, mechanical, and chemical testing methods. Many major manufacturers in the Aerospace, Automotive, Medical Device, and Additive Manufacturing industries rely on IMR for their polymer testing services.

Polymer testing identifies material characteristics to ensure products meet required standards.  Due to the variety of applications for polymers different tests and styles of tests may be required.  IMR performs testing include identification, contaminant analysis, failure analysis, chemical, thermal, mechanical, physical testing and more. Our multi-disciplinary testing approach draws on the expertise of our chemists, engineers, and technologists.

Our concise reports include stress-strain diagrams with data on proportional and elastic limits, yield points and strength, and compressive strength- critical information for material evaluation and selection.

In-house sample preparation is performed by experienced machinists to reduce turnaround time and ensure accurate sample cutting.

Fiber-reinforced composites and ceramic-matrix composites are strong, lightweight, corrosion, and heat resistant, making them ideal for industries including transportation, infrastructure, and building construction.

These modern materials require significant testing and validation to ensure that the raw materials and final products are manufactured and cured correctly for the intended application.

Our staff is well-trained in the evaluation of non-metallic materials and will work with you to implement your test plan. Our composites lab provides routine production control testing, support for R&D efforts, and failure analysis services to manufacturers in a wide range of industries from infrastructure to aerospace.

Our polymer, plastics, coatings, and fiber-reinforced composites experts are well-versed in the failure modes of these materials. They can provide you with a clear, concise cause-analysis report that explains the contributing factors of the failure and suggestions to prevent a recurrence.
