Advocates of the scientific method

We want your product to perform as intended, consistently and repeatably.

That might mean using one – or a variety of – testing methods during the design and manufacturing process. This also means using only the highest quality rubber testing equipment.

Finite Element Analysis:

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can be used during the design phase to assess likely weak points, engineer those out and understand how the product will wear. We use this kind of testing prior to manufacture to understand how a product will perform and give us the best chance at an optimum design before we even step foot inside our moulding facilities with your design.

Material testing:

If the question lies around material performance and likely wear or mechanical properties, the most appropriate testing route may be around the material itself, to asses rubber fatigue or how it will perform within your environment. We may either use our own facilities or one of the testing houses that we partner with, depending on the requirements. Our chemists will help to design and test the most suitable material for the environment in question.

Rubber product testing and validation:

There are some products which, due to their critical nature, have to be individually tested post-manufacture. We offer this service and will work with you to assist in creating an appropriate, repeatable test to prevent failure in the field.
