Here at ACE Laboratories, we use some of the world’s leading rubber testing equipment to provide accurate, reliable, and timely results to clients. In addition, we partner with equipment manufacturers to offer your laboratory state-of-the-art equipment. 

When it comes to effective rubber testing, the right equipment is essential. It is important that the results derived using a piece of equipment are trustworthy and repeatable. If not, the equipment is a hindrance, not a help. That’s why ACE partners with rubber testing equipment companies we trust to produce top quality machinery.

Rubber Compression Equipment

One type of rubber testing equipment is rubber compression equipment. This equipment is commonly used in the aerospace, automotive, and construction industries, particularly for characterising elastomeric seals. 

This type of rubber testing can be performed using several products from Wallace Instruments, including their Compression Set Apparatus, Compression Stress Relaxometer Mk V, and accompanying Compression Stress Relaxometer Jigs.

Rubber Hardness Testing Equipment 

The Wallace IRHD Micro Hardness Tester allows ACE to accurately and consistently test small, thin samples and O-rings. During the hardness testing procedure, ACE applies a standard force to your sample and records a hardness value accordingly. 

Accurate hardness testing of small, thin samples helps manufacturers meet industry standards and move forward with new product development efforts.

Other Rubber Testing Equipment

Other rubber testing equipment available from our trusted partners include:

  • Densimeters
  • Flex Testing Equipment
  • Hardness Testing Equipment
  • Laboratory and Aging Ovens
  • Plasticity Testing Equipment
  • Specimen Preparation Equipment
  • Accessories (Thin Film Grips, etc.)

Mechanical Tensile Testing 

The CubeOne from LabsCubed is a machine designed for multi-sample rubber tensile testing. In addition to standard testing following ASTM and ISO standards, the CubeOne adds automation to speed up testing, improve consistency, and free up laboratory technicians for greater productivity. 

The CubeOne connects to user-friendly, intuitive software that makes processing tensile testing results simpler than ever. The automation and simplicity provided by the CubeOne helps you better serve clients with faster turnaround times and more organized results.

The CubeOne accommodates up to 12 tensile or tear samples at once. Setup takes five minutes for faster turnaround and less time spent per sample. The CubeOne can run 36 test methods, making it a versatile addition to any rubber testing laboratory.
