Physical and mechanical testing of polymers ensure polymeric materials meet application performance requirements.

The physical and mechanical testing of polymers is a vital part of the product development and production process. Mechanical, thermal, optical, rheological behaviour and climate testing allow the developers to understand their product better, and introduce stronger quality control.  Therefore we offer our AIMtm tool solution, which gives the possibility to prepare the required test specimen in a most efficient way.
These test specimens are needed for the physical and mechanical testing of polymers to ensure that the material complies with industry specifications. This applies to the aerospace, automotive, consumer, medical and defence industries, amongst others. With the vast array of polymer material types and additives available, understanding the capabilities and limitations of a material is a key concern to suppliers, manufacturers and product developers on every level of the polymer industry.

Even when it comes to non-standard methods we offer our specialist insight, knowledge and experience to manufacture a dedicated tool that is cabable to mould a customer specific test specimen

As a specialist in toolmaking and over 3 decades of experience with tools dedicated for material testing,  the variety in made test specimen tools by Axxicon for physical and mechanical testing are infinite and includes ASTM, ISO, BS and DIN standards.
