Custom compression and tension load testing is performed by our staff on prototypes, production pieces and competitor parts using custom designed fixtures and procedures for proof load and determination of ultimate failure loads/locations. The reports will include photographic documentation of the process, observations, data, and comments for design improvement, due diligence testing, and other safety related concerns.
Related testing services include:
Elevated temperature tensile and stress rupture testing at temperatures up to 1950°F, hydrogen embrittlement relief testing, shear testing, adhesive testing, and peel testing.
Charpy impact testing is important t predict the likelihood of brittle fracture at a specified temperature. CMTL performs Charpy impact, Izod impact, and vertical drop impact testing at various temperatures on metals, alloys, plastics, and composite materials.
Hardness is the resistance to permanent plastic deformation. CMTL performs testing on the Rockwell scales, Brinell scale, Vickers and Knoop, Durometer scale and for Jominy Hardenability on various materials.
Mar & Abrasion Testing
Commonly referred to as Taber abrasion, this is a process of scratching, scuffing, or wearing down a given finish ie; (anodized panels) or material in-order to determine the resistance of a finish or material to abrasion or marring.
Other examples of Physical Property Testing
Flammability of plastics to meet standards such as FMVSS302, Melt Flow, ESCR, fade, thermal stability, resistance to deformation, resistance to chemical attack and staining.
