Material Testing

Simultaneous dielectric and dynamic mechanic analyses performed on Elastomers

DMA explores the dynamic mechanic material properties by applying forced sinusoidal mechanical deformations or forces. A static load is applied to a flat rubber cylinder, superimposed by mechanical oscillations. The sample’s response to the load is measured. This response is delayed in time. more...

Abrasive wear Behaviors of several Rubber Conveyor Belt Materials used in different Working Conditions

The abrasive wear is caused by conveyed materials such as coal, granite and hard rock in belt conveyors. It is expected that abrasion resistance of rubber belts is high. Conveyor belts are exposed to different working conditions such as natural weathering, oil, acid, thermal cycling and accelerated ageing during service life. more...
