MECHANICAL PROPERTIES TESTING

 

The mechanical properties of a polymer determine the range of usefulness and the service that can be expected from the material. Mechanical properties testing provides information on strength, impact resistance, hardness and fracture toughness. Testing for mechanical properties is performed under various conditions. These are:
