Tensile and stiffness properties

The strength and stiffness of plastics are important for the design of products and parts in order to predict their performance under stress. This is especially important in structural, load bearing applications. Plastic materials can be stiff, rigid and strong or opposite and the final product can furthermore be isotropic or anisotropic. There are a wide range of methods to test and describe such mechanical properties.


Our methods:

ISO 527-1/2 - Determination of tensile properties

ASTM D638 - Tensile Properties of Plastics

ASTM D412 Test Methods for Vulcanized Rubber and Thermoplastic Elastomers

ISO37 - Tensile Testing of Rubber, vulcanized or thermoplastic 

ISO 178 - Determination of flexural properties, e.g. modulus
