Rubber Testing Labs

Rubber Testing Labs

The Applied Technical Services rubber testing labs conduct testing and analysis on rubber components for manufacturers in several different industries. Manufacturers select component materials for use in their products based on the expected performance capabilities of those chosen materials. For example, tires need to be durable enough to withstand normal driving conditions, pliable enough to deform without breaking when exposed to stress, elastic enough to snap back into shape after they have been deformed by extreme amounts of pressure, and tough enough to resist failure due to tearing. To ensure that the rubber they choose will perform to expectations during end use, OEMs send samples to a third party that specializes in analyzing their material — like Applied Technical Services’ rubber testing labs.
