Tensile Testing

March 2018


At Fluorocarbon, we test mechanical properties of various polymers (Fluoropolymers, Melt Processable Thermoplastics, Thermosets, Composites, etc.) in Universal Testing Machine to the 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.
