Applied Technical Services offers comprehensive tensile coupon testing through our tensile testing laboratories. We have the capabilities to provide polymer coupon testing, steel/metals coupon testing, and ceramic coupon testing. Our experts can report on common characteristics such as percent elongation, yield strength, tensile strength, and reduction of area. All tensile coupon testing is performed to relevant standards and client specifications.

What is a Coupon?

A coupon is a small sample of a more extensive test material. Testing larger materials or products can prove to be expensive and complex; therefore, tensile coupon testing is an effective and cheaper alternative. Technicians prepare the sample piece in a way that its properties are representative of the whole material. Tensile coupon testing is essential to ensuring the integrity of a product is up to relevant standards. In some cases, multiple coupons must undergo testing to provide margins of error in the case of material differences. ATS meticulously prepares coupons because external stimuli that would not affect the larger material may drastically impact the coupon.
