Tensile Properties of Plastic

Tensile testing measures the force required to break a specimen and the extent to which the specimen stretches or elongates to that breaking point. Tensile tests produce a stress-strain diagram that is used to determine the tensile modulus. The data is often used to specify a material, to design a part that will withstand application force, or to maintain quality control.

ARDL provides tensile testing for thin film plastics, rigid plastics, PTFE materials and many more thermoplastic materials. With the capability to mold test specimens for ASTM and ISO specifications, ARDL is the right choice for your tensile testing needs.
