Tensile Testing for Metals and Non-Metallic Materials

CloseupGrips_0Tensile testing is one of the most basic methods for determining a material’s strength characteristics. Depending on the final application of the material, the test may call for a static load, or one that is slowly applied over time. Uniaxial stress results measure Young’s modulus, Poisson’s ratio and yield strength. This data is critical in determining flexibility and strength of the material used in the final product.

For materials being utilized in extreme temperature environments, a full array of cryogenic and high-temperature testing applications are required. Accurate non-ambient testing data is determined with our regularly calibrated equipment.

IMR's customers routinely rely on our experienced machinists for precise preparation of their testing samples for consistency.
