Weathering

Weathering

Test Details There are a number of factors to consider when designing and developing a product that will be subjected to long-term sunlight and outdoor exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) rays, ozone, and solar radiation can all cause different reactions in a given material or...
Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)

Test Details DMA collects data pertaining to the loss modulus and the storage modulus of a polymer sample, and from this analysis many characteristics can be observed and measured such as filler effect, glass transition, stress relaxation and cure behavior.  DMA is...
Flex Fatigue

Flex Fatigue

Test Details ASTM D430 measures the dynamic fatigue on materials through cyclic flexing through surface cracking and break. ASTM D813 provides an estimation of a materials ability to resist crack growth through cyclic flexing of a pierced test specimen. ASTM D4482...
Adhesion Testing

Adhesion Testing

Test Details ASTM D1329 provides a way to quickly and consistently evaluate both the viscoelastic properties of rubber along with the effects of crystallization at low temperature. With established correlations to low-temperature compression set and brittleness...
Tension

Tension

Test Details In addition to the commonly referenced tensile and elongation properties most associated with ASTM D412, the standard also expands upon several other key areas of tension properties as well. One of those areas is Tensile Set in which a material is...
