Tensile Testing

Tensile Testing

At Fluorocarbon, we test mechanical properties of various polymers (Fluoropolymers, Melt Processable Thermoplastics, Thermosets, Composites, etc.)

Various International Standards such as:

  • ASTM D638 - Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Plastics
  • ASTM D695 - Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties of Rigid Plastics
  • ASTM D621 - Test Methods for Deformation of Plastics Under Load
  • ASTM D790 - Standard Test Methods for Flexural Properties of Unreinforced and Reinforced Plastics and Electrical Insulating Materials
  • ISO 13000: Plastics - Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) semi-finished products - Part 1: Requirements and designation
  • BS EN 1464: Adhesives - Determination of peel resistance of adhesive bonds - Floating roller method
  • BS EN 1464: Adhesives - Determination of peel resistance of adhesive bonds
  • Several Other Standards as well

One of the standard pieces of equipment we have is a Tensile Tester, the key features of this testing machine are as follows:

  • To test a wide range of materials: Plastics, Elastomers, Composites, Adhesives, Etc
  • Powerful & Sophisticated software to accurately control the machine and for data collection
  • Capable of testing at multiple speeds to various testing standards
  • Several in-built libraries to test various international ISO, BS, & ASTM Standards
  • Full capability to meet ISO 9001 quality system
  • Load cells are accurate between 0.2 to 100% load cell capacities: This will enable soft and hard sample to be tested in the same load cell.
  • Data collection rate of 2730 samples per second will enable R&D testing & Data Analysis quick & efficient

Capable of testing Strength, Elongation, Elastic Modulus, Energy at Break and Creep strain and many more.
