Instron’s plastics testing solutions are featured in a 40-page, applications-focused brochure that describes how a polymer material moves through its life cycle of raw material to compound to semifinished to finished product. It also highlights the firm’s products and how they address critical areas during a plastic material’s life cycle. The brochure discusses various testing challenges in different sectors and how they are successfully addressed. Key standards such as ISO 527-1, -2, -3, ISO 11443, ISO 75, ASTM D638, and ASTM D3835 are covered in a testing challenge and solution format. Focusing on the most widely used standards in the materials testing industry for plastics, test types such as impact, rheology, thermomechanical, specimen preparation, mechanical testing, dynamic/fatigue, and hardness are described.
