Tension and compression

Using tension and compression tests, it is very easy to determine the mechanical properties of materials. In the area of material testing, we use this to prove for example how mechanical properties of plastics change as a result of a chemical resistance test.

At the same time, our equipment enables us to conduct and measure product-specific tests, for example tear-out tests of cables, insertion forces of connectors, retention forces of fasteners, peel tests, etc.

The standards and procedures in this area include the following:

  • DIN EN ISO 527-3 Plastics - Determination of tensile properties - Part 3: Test conditions for foils and sheets
  • DIN EN ISO 8510 Adhesives - Peel test for flexible/rigid bonded specimens - Part 2: 180-degree peel
