Test Laboratory Accreditation

Since November 2016 our Test Laboratory accreditation to ISO 17025:2005, enables us to perform the following tests for our customers:

Test           Standard               Description

Lap Shear                        ASTM D1002-10                          A method for testing adhesion by pulling bonded layers apart along the plane of adhesion.

 

T-Peel                                ASTM D1876-08                          A good accurate method of assessing the quality of a joint but is only applicable for flexible       test pieces for example aluminium foil. An example would be the force it takes to pull tape off a roll.

 

Climbing Drum            ASTM D1781-98                          A peel test but designed to understand the bond between a surface, or ‘skin’ and a sub-straight. In our case we usually test the bond between honeycomb aluminium and an aluminium skin.

 

Flatwise Tensile          ASTM C297/C296M-16             Test specimens are cut from sandwich panels, and the faces of these specimens are bonded to aluminium blocks. The aluminium blocks are mounted in a universal test machine and pulled apart. This force, along with the area of the specimen is used to establish the bond strength.

 

We use a Universal Test Machine( Inston or LLoyds machine) for each of the above test. the samples are pulled apart at a pre-determined rate (mm per min), the force required to do this is continuously measured and recorded. This information is used to assess  the strength of the bond.
