Different types of polymers for Polymer Material Testing

Polymer Testing Services

Applied Technical Services offers a variety of Polymer Testing Services, including polymer material testing, polymer fracture analysis, polymer characterization, polymer strength testing, polymer structure analysis, and polymer fatigue testing.

Polymer Strength Testing
Polymer Strength Testing is an effective, cost-efficient testing method used to determine the strength, resilience, physical capabilities, and structural characteristics of polymer-based materials and components. Strength testing a polymer can help to identify potential flaws in a test subject to ensure proper functionality and avoid product failure. Strength testing also provides detailed information regarding the sample’s expected lifespan and identifies weaknesses, allowing manufacturers to make adjustments and improvements early in the development phase. As there are many different methods used to analyze a polymer-based material’s strength, the most effective method is determined by the sample product’s intended use.

Polymer Fatigue Testing
Due to polymer’s unique flexibility characteristics and molecular structure, performing fatigue testing for polymer-based materials is essential to verifying the sample’s resistance to external forces. There are several types of fatigue testing that incorporate different methods to analyze a polymer’s strength and characteristics. Testing the strength of a polymer allows manufacturers to identify expected product life cycle, verify industry compliance, and make quality improvements. For more information, click here.
Polymer Characterization

Polymer characterization is an in-depth analytical procedure that consists of closely examining the structure and composition of polymeric materials in order to verify structural integrity and identify flaws and weaknesses. Polymer characterization identifies several different material characteristics, including molecular mass, thermal stability, and mechanical properties. Polymer characterization is an efficient, cost-effective analysis method that serves many different purposes. For more information, click here.

Polymer Structure Analysis
Polymer Structure Analysis is used to closely examine and identify the structure and structural characteristics of a polymer-based sample product or component. Polymers are a highly utilized material due to their unique qualities, though there are several different factors of a polymer’s structure that need to be precisely calibrated in order to ensure the desired friction resistance, flexibility, strength, and durability. ATS conducts structure analysis of polymers to provide clients with a detailed, precise look at their products to ensure optimal performance and proper functionality.

Polymer Fracture Analysis

Performing fracture analysis on a polymer involves analyzing a fractured polymer-based material in order to identify the characteristics and causes of the fracture. Polymers can fracture at low stress levels due to cyclic stress and fatigue, structural flaws, creep rupture, the presence of failure-inducing chemicals or agents, or long-term stress. There are several types of defects that can lead to the uneven distribution of stress and failure in polymer-based materials, such as crystalline boundaries, dislocations, and amorphous interlayers. Polymers possess a unique structure and require experienced polymer testing experts to ensure proper failure cause identification. For more information, click here.
