IN-HOUSE TESTING LABORATORY

We are experts in the testing of thermoplastic and thermoset polymeric materials
and the processes applied to them

STATIC TESTS

  • Modulus of elasticity
  • Flexural modulus and strength
  • Tensile modulus, ultimate tensile strength, and elongation at break
  • Tensile breaking load
  • Tension, strain at break, and modulus in 3-point bending test
  • Tensile creep
  • Compression creep
  • Bending creep
  • Creep tests at constant strain and constant load

DYNAMIC TESTING

  • High-speed traction on a conventional machine (speed of 333 mm/s)
  • Very high strain rate load curves (speeds up to 5 m/s)
  • Fatigue testing under load or deformation control
  • Fatigue testing in strain control

IMPACT TESTING

  • Drilling tests on plastic materials (instrumented and not)
  • (uninstrumented)
  • Test d’Impatto Charpy
  • Test d’Impatto Charpy strumentato

TEST DI PRODOTTO

Step Testing, thanks to its mechanical and software expertise, is able to develop tests dedicated to a customer’s specific needs. Requests may result in a contract service or the development of a dedicated test system.
