Material characterisation

Tensile testing to assess the effect of temperature and strain rate on a polymer’s mechanical response in order to guide stretch blow moulding process conditions.

Biaxial testing

Temperature, stretch ratio, strain rate and the mode of deformation can all be varied to fully capture the mechanical response of your polymer.

Data output

Comparison of biaxial stress strain curves across test conditions allows the user to assess the temperature and rate dependency of the polymer.

Uniaxial testing

Elastic modulus, yield strength and elongation to failure of biaxially stretched sheet can be measured and related to the biaxial stretching processing conditions.
