TEST OBJECT

  • Polymer and composite materials;
  • paint and varnish matter and coats;
  • polyvinyl chloride type.

TESTING PROCEDURES

Climatic testing:

  • for operation under elevated ambient temperature from +40 till +80°С;
  • for operation under lowered ambient temperature from –30 down to –50°С;
  • for operation under variable ambient temperature from +80 till –40°С;
  • for operation under the effect of sun radiation

Physico-mechanical tests for:

  • tensile strength;
  • elongation at rupture;
  • compressive strength;
  • compressive strain;
  • elasticity modulus at tension and compression;
  • impact resistance;
  • flexural elasticity;
  • shrinkage;
  • density;
  • resistance to lamination ;
  • latticed notch adhesion;
  • Brinell hardness;
  • coefficient of linear thermal expansion;
  • Sharpy impact strength;
  • Vicat thermostability.

Electrical tests:

  • specific surface resistance;
  • specific volume resistance.

Testing for:

  • resistance to chemicals;
  • water absorption;
  • determining characteristics of filtering elements and systems;
  • bubble point;
  • diffusion;
  • bubble point and diffusion;
  • pressure difference;
  • water-intrusion test (WIT);
  • multitest for diffusion and other

The laboratory defines at a high professional level the warranty period of materials and their components using databases and computer design;
draws up quality test reports of materials or components;
renders consulting in problems of atmospheric resistance and aging of polymer and composite materials.
