Determination of hardness can be done for substances classified as vulcanized thermoset rubber, thermoplastic elastomers, cellular materials, elastomeric materials, gel-like materials, and plastics.

Durometer scale is a type of measurement for rubber and plastic material hardness. Generally flexible plastic materials fall under the Scale Shore A. Hard plastics use Shore D. Determination of this Ball indentation hardness is generally used for harder plastics, It measures the resistance of plastics towards indentation and provides necessary hardness values.

Generally Type R indenter is used for Plastics hardness measurements. Tensile d670 of Plastics provide very useful information for its engineering design purpose. Characteristics such as Tensile strength, Elongation, Elongation at Yield, Modulus of elasticity and other tensile properties can be determined. The test is intended to measure the ability of rubber to retain elastic properties after prolonged.

Plastics show significantly different Absorption energy when subjected to an impact load. A measure of impact resistance of material is useful for Quality estimation purposes.


The Charpy Impact test indicates the energy of break standard test specimen under Standard conditions with notching. This test ast of prime importance for the Identification of material. It is also used to indicate us the physical changes if any, loss of plasticisers, absorption of solvent or because of any other cause. The test helps to determine the uniformity of the flow rate of polymer at a particular condition. A measure of the Vicat softening temperature of plastics is useful for the characterization of plastics by its heat-softening qualities.

The test method covers a procedure to determine the temperature at which plastics deform when it is subjected high temperature and load.

Standard Test Method for Rubber-Compositional Analysis by Thermogravimetry (TGA)

Rate of burning of plastics, and also rate and extent of burning characterises are studied for understanding processing character and v6370. Evaluation of Plastic products functioning under chemical contact for mechanical property changes is important for such products.

Extend of deterioration in properties can be estimated after immersion in the specified chemicals. Tear resistance which is the ultimate resistance to rupture is estimated. The force to initiate asym for flexible plastic films and sheetings is determined.

This test is useful for investigative, reconstructions and quality control purposes. The polymers in a given material or product can be determined by Infrared spectrophotometry. The infrared spectrum of the x6370 specimen is superimposed on a reference spectrum and compared for determination of polymer used.


A small mass of test sample is subjected to controlled heating under specific environment and the mass loss over a temperature range is measured.

Maeon laboratories offer testing of plastics for the determination of Transition temperatures, such as Entahalpies of Fusion and Crystallization of Polymers — including Tm, Tg, Tc. Maeon laboratories has facility for determining Dielectric properties of insulating materials plastic composites and elastomer compounds used commercially for insulation purposes. Sheets, extrusions, coatings, hoses and cellular materials can be tested for this parameter.

Maeon laboratories has test facilities to induce property changes in polymeric materials, which are associated with end-use conditions, such as sunlight, moisture and heat. The deterioration caused is evaluated for its end use. Films of any thickness below 1.

Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)

Determination of Flexural properties are important for specifying ashm and the control of quality. Flexural Strength, Modulus, Flexural strain. A rectangular test specimen is placed on 2 supports and loaded at the centre of supports. Maeon laboratories has facility for evaluating plastics for its behaviour at low temperature. A test device determines the brittleness point of plastics r under impact at low temperature.
