Mechanical Property Testing of Polymers & Polymer Matrix Composites

Mechanical testing of materials is available in house utilizing our 100 kN United Floor Model Smart-1. The professionals at KARS’ have experience with a number of ASTM tests including mechanical testing of pultruded composites (ASTM D7205 and ASTM D3916), laminate composite testing, metallic/alloy component testing, and concrete mechanical testing. Consultation on non-standarized mechanical tests for component and materials is also available upon request.
