By carrying out a professional independent analysis of your materials you can have full confidence that the quality of the workmanship meets the required standard and eliminate the possibility of potential costly material failures in the future.
Why do we need to test material integtrity?
The reasons we carry out Tensile testing in Industry are as follows:
Material selection for an application
Predict how a material will perform in it applied environment?
Verify requirements of a specification, regulation and contract
Product development program is on track:
Proof of concept
Concept for Patent
Provide standard data
Quality assurance functions
Protection against legal proceedings
The need to test industrial plastics?
Plastic are polymers that have had various substances added to improve effective performance and costings. Plastic may be extruded, formed or pressed into various different form used in Industry.
Forming plastics using thermal methods or using heat can potentially cause items to become brittle and prone to cracking or breaking and not conform to best industrial standards. These materials need be tested to destruction in order to determine product quality and to conform to international standards set by ISO.
Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee.
International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
International Standards Organization
The Irish National Accreditation Board (INAB) is the national body with responsibility for the accreditation of laboratories, certification bodies and inspection bodies. It provides accreditation in accordance with the relevant International Organisation for Standardisation ISO 17000 series of standards and guides.
It is the statutory body responsible for Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and is the competent body for EMAS (European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme).
