Material Performance & Durability

Do you know what conditions your product or material can withstand? ARDL can perform a variety of material performance and durability tests on almost any type of product, material or compound, including:

  • Coatings
  • Coated Rubber or Plastics
  • Composites
  • Elastomers
  • Films
  • Hoses
  • Medical Devices
  • Natural & Synthetic Rubber
  • O-Rings
  • Packaging
  • Polymers
  • Toys
  • Tubing
  • Windshield Wiper Blades

Types of Material Performance and Durability Testing Include:

Aging Characteristics

  • Relaxation
  • Compression Set/Tension Set
  • Thermal Stability

Crack and Growth Fracture

  • Fatigue
  • Environmental (Ozone, Light)
  • Tear Resistance

Other types of testing are also available. Please contact ARDL's Engineering department to discuss how Material Performance and Durability Testing can help you and your product.

Material Performance and Durability Studies Allow ARDL to Determine:

Dynamic Modulus

  • High-Temperature Dependence
  • Low-Temperature Dependence
  • Post Aging

Static Modulus

  • High-Temperature Dependence
  • Low-Temperature Dependence
  • Post Aging
