Two of the most common test requests at a material lab, Tensile and Flexural tests determine the strength of a particular material under stress.
D638-14, D412-16, D790-17
This standard is a measurement of a polymer material’s ability to resist forces that pull it apart and analyze to what extent the material stretches before it fails and breaks.
The following data can be inferred from the test:
This standard determined the tensile properties for vulcanized rubber and thermoplastic elastomers. The test evaluates the test sample during and after stretching.
The following data can be analyzed from the results:
This standard determines the flexural properties of unreinforced and reinforced plastics. A material’s flexural strength is the ability of the material to withstand bending forces applied perpendicular to its longitudinal axis.
The following data can be analyzed:
