Physical Testing of Rubber

Want to find out how the rubber you produce for tires will hold up against road wear? Want to make sure your polymer tubing holds up to industry standards and requirements? Need to be certain your elastomer is flexible enough to satisfy its end use?

Any of these questions and more can be answered by a physical property test of elastomers and rubber. ACE’s expansive lineup of rubber testing instruments allow our expert laboratory technicians to deliver the results you need to move your rubber products forward with confidence.

Physical Testing of Elastomers

Physical testing of materials is not just useful (or possible) for rubber alone. Any elastomer or polymer material can be physically tested, including cellular elastomers. ACE performs elastomer testing, including tear testing and flex fatigue, according to a wide array of ASTM test methods.

Depending on the product, industry, and your goals, elastomer testing can be used to evaluate material properties, support quality control and research development, and to test product performance.

Basic Rubber Testing

Rubber testing is critical to any industry that uses rubber. Due to this broad use, appropriate choice of standard test methods will likely vary from industry to industry, and even from manufacturer to manufacturer.

The best way to create a plan of action is to contact ACE and consult with one of our rubber testing experts. Standard tests are always tailored to your goals, so you get exactly what you need, when you need it.
