Testing & Analysis
We work closely with our customers on all aspects of seal testing and development programs.
All testing procedures are carried out to international standards, BS ISO, DIN, ASTM, or to customer specific requirements. We offer a diverse range of compounds to satisfy the majority of market needs.
If a customer has a specific need that cannot be met within our existing elastomer range, we will develop new compound grades at our in-house laboratory. We are able to conduct extensive test programs to fully validate specific elastomers to customer parameters (e.g. temperature/media exposure and mechanical property testing).
- Hardness test (IRHD/Shore A)
- Elongation at break
- Low temperature retraction (TR)
- Compression set test
- Steam ageing (Autoclave)
- Stress relaxation
- Rheometry/cure state analysis
- Media compatibility
- Fourier transform infrared (FTIR)
- Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)
We will also validate to specific accreditation standards (e.g. EN681, WRAS, DVGW, ACS, KIWA, NSF, EN 549).
