BS EN ISO 8339 Tensile Properties

Mechanical

ISO, BSI, EN

Sealants, Plastics, Chemical

This tests the true strength of the sealant and how well it adheres to the materials if is intended to be used with. The sealants undergo the usual 28 laboratory conditioning and possible dry heat/cool water cycling before being stuck in a tensile machine and pulled apart. The force required and the distance the sealant stretches before breaking is recorded. From the data, either the secant modulus is calculated or the extension at the breaking point and the break assessed.

Reviews From Our Happy Clients
We had a requirement to test a sample of a large stock of face masks, to ensure their suitability for use by those supporting the response to the "COVID pandemic".  4ward Testing were recommended to us and they delivered their report well within the agreed timescale. I was impressed with their recognition of the urgency this work required and communications with Polly & Anthony were excellent so I would have no hesitation in using their services again, or in recommending them to others!
