Mechanical Tests

Mechanical tests of polymers are the basis for the determination of mechanical material properties like strength, stiffness, toughness, ductility or hardness of polymeric materials. The polymers are quantitatively described by characteristic parameters which are taken from the specific tests. The results can be used for the dimensioning of plastic parts, enable the direct comparison of various polymers and the verification of values from data sheets or an estimation of suitability of the tested material for certain areas of application.

For the determination of the mechanical properties and the characteristic values, we offer a wide range of mechanical tests on polymers. These include tensile test, bend test, compression test, drop test, hardness measurement, impact test, fracture mechanics tests and other methods of material investigations.

We arrange for you the preparation of specimen made of polymer granulates or extract those from plates or components.
