MECHANICAL TESTING SERVICES FOR POLYMER, COMPOSITE, AND ELASTOMERIC MATERIALS
Mechanical testing of polymers is used to determine the mechanical properties of a polymeric material. It can be used to evaluate a material independent of its geometry and also at defined geometrical conditions. There are a wide variety of mechanical testing methods that can be performed when evaluating a material, but the goals for testing are common:
- Obtain material properties and characterizations for Finite Element Analysis
- Check the quality of your cure cycle with simple tests such as tensile testing and short beam shear
- Test different material lots or batches for comparison
There is often more than one form of mechanical test that can be used to evaluate a given mechanical property. To find out more about IMR's mechanical testing of polymers capabilities, click on the images below. To request a quote, click the button below.
