With superior flexibility, strength and versatility, the mechanical properties of polymers make them invaluable for projects in every major industry. Our experts have experience testing polymers, thermoplastics, composites and adhesives for virtually any application.
Because of their elasticity and varying composition, mechanical properties of polymers can be hard to define. However, a firm grasp of a material's physical limits is crucial to the success of any project.
We test the mechanical properties of polymers to ensure that they are reliable and fit for purpose, no matter the use. Whether you need routine testing or assistance with R&D, you can be confident that the results you receive from Element are accurate and complete the first time, every time.
