Flex testers are essential for helping companies assess the durability of rubber components such as vulcanized rubber. Specimens of rubber are subjected to repeat flexing over a specified period of time so that the levels of flex cracking and crack growth can be determined.
Qualitest’s DeMattia Flex Tester has a solid aluminum and stainless steel structure that can hold up to 16 samples, allowing operators to conduct multiple flexure tests between -30°C to 200°C. Our Flex Tester is also very accommodating, with a flexure stroke and clamps that can be altered for multiple sample sizes.
We recently delivered one of these machines to a leader in specialty chemicals, which will help them determine which ingredients will maximize the potency of rubbers to create the most durable products that can stand up to flex testing.
Qualitest’s DeMattia Flex Tester is one of the most adaptable in the industry, specifically designed to reduce vibration and noise to guarantee consistent and repeatable results.
