Testing rubber materials usually requires testing machines capable of measuring very high stresses in addition to testing at temperatures above and below ambient.
Some of the most common test types within rubber testing are tear, tensile test, compression test, and relaxation test. These are just a few of the many types of tests that can be performed on our high-precision testing machines.
Tinius Olsen offers extended column machines ideal for rubber applications that are compatible with long travel contact and non-contact extensometers.
Thermal chambers for rubber testing between -70°C and +300°C are also available for the study of physical properties at temperatures other than ambient.
Our material testing and force measurement instruments are used by some of the most innovative companies in the world. We specialize in custom material testing solutions designed to meet the individual needs of our clients. Our involvement in the rubber industry spans decades, giving us vast experience in the field of rubber testing.
