When testing plastic products, companies need to analyze materials in several different ways to ensure the quality holds up in a variety of applications. For instance, in the plastic film industry, all plastics used have to be tensile and strong while also being very thin.
Instead of shipping out their products to be tested elsewhere, a company in the blown film sector recently ordered several items from Qualitest in order to create their own lab on-site, which will lower costs considerably and confirm that tests are carried out to the best standards in the industry.
The company received an Elmendorf Tear Strength Tester, to determine the average force required to create a single-rip tongue-type tear; a Drop Dart Impact Tester, to measure impact resistance of film, sheet, and laminated materials; and a Precision Universal Tester with Pneumatic Grips for closely analyzing the peak strength and elongation characteristics of plastics and films.
Qualitest works with all kinds of companies from the onset of a request to its resolution, with the meticulous attention required to see a customer all the way through. These machines will provide a well-rounded testing environment to guarantee that this company’s plastic products meet the highest international standards.
