Strength, Fatigue, and Tensile Testing at Applied Technical Services

Polymer Strength Testing is a cost-effective method to determine the structural characteristics, capabilities, and potential flaws of a polymer or polymer-based part or component. Strength testing a polymer-based material verifies its resilience to ensure proper functionality in its intended operating environment and provides the manufacturer with insight into the product’s expected life cycle. Strength testing also identifies potential weaknesses, allowing manufacturers to make improvements and adjustments to help avoid product failure. There are several different methods used to analyze the strength of a polymer, the best of which is usually determined by the type of product and its intended purpose.

The Applied Technical Services mechanical testing laboratory houses advanced strength, tensile, and fatigue testing equipment and technologies. Strength testing includes various types of testing to determine the strength of a product or material. Strength testing may include fatigue testing, elasticity testing, malleability testing, and tensile testing. Fatigue testing is performed by applying cyclic loads to a test subject, simulating its standard functions and operating environment. Tensile testing involves applying specific types of tension to a subject while monitoring its physical state. The subsequent data from these tests is then analyzed to identify different traits, qualities, and characteristics of the product, component, or material being tested. At ATS, our certified mechanical testing experts and engineers can design tests and fabricate the necessary fixtures to comply with custom client-specified testing standards for various types of mechanical testing.
