Instron, a leading provider of testing equipment solutions designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components, announces the new Plastics Testing Solutions brochure, a 40-page, applications-focused and standards-based brochure that was officially unveiled at the K-Show in Dusseldorf, Germany. The K 2010 Exhibition was the ideal place to showcase and highlight the solutions that Instron and CEAST products bring to the market.
Polymers are utilized in virtually every facet of human activity and industry – from packaging to
automotive, electronics to healthcare, and construction to aerospace. The brochure describes how a polymer material moves through its life-cycle of raw material to compound to semi-finished to finished product. It also highlights the range of Instron product offerings and how they address each and every critical area during the life-cycle of a plastic material.
“We understand the challenges our customers are facing and have incorporated our testing solutions to their specific applications within this new brochure,” says Yahya Gharagozlou, President IMT. “We are evolving along with the plastics industry – focusing on learning more about specific applications and new opportunities. Our new Plastics Testing Solutions brochure outlines some of the testing challenges in different sectors and how they are successfully addressed using Instron and CEAST solutions.”
Important standards, such as ISO 527-1, -2, -3, ISO 11443, ISO 75, ASTM D638, and ASTM D3835, are covered in a detailed testing challenge and solution format. Focusing on the most prominent and widely-used standards in the materials testing industry for plastics, test types such as Impact, Rheology, Thermo-Mechanical, Specimen Preparation, Mechanical Testing, Dynamic/Fatigue, and Hardness are described in great detail.
The cover of Plastics Testing Solutions is a synthetic material made primarily of a polypropylene film that is waterproof, tear resistant, and eco-friendly.
