Need of Coal Testing Labs
  • Plastics can be primarily categorized into thermoplastics and thermosetting polymers. The separating characteristic of thermoplastics is the fact that they don’t experience any change in their chemical properties when exposed to heat. But on being heated above the glass transition temperature, the thermoplastics become soft and rubbery. The thermoplastics are more rigid at lower temperatures. Thermoplastics can be melted and recast almost indefinitely. They are in a molten state when heated and harden upon cooling. But when a thermoplastic is frozen, it becomes glass-like and subject to fracture. These distinctive traits, which lend the material its name, are reversible, so the material can be reheated,

reshaped, and frozen multiple times. And thus, thermoplastics are mechanically recyclable.

  • Some of the most common types of thermoplastic are polypropylene, polyethylene, polyvinylchloride, polystyrene, polyethylenetheraphthalate, and polycarbonate. Thermoplastics have been used for a long time and are a crucial component of everyday life. They find applications in multiple areas such as Sports equipment, Toys, Various automobile parts, Shampoo bottles, Plastic grocery bags, Bullet-proof vests, and so on. And as a result, the importers of goods with elements of thermoplastic must ensure that the material their supplier provides meets their industry specifications on the key parameters of safety, durability, and certifications. And this can happen when the thermoplastics are tested thoroughly in the testing labs.


what is thermoplastic testing
  • The thermoplastics find usage in a lot of industry and the compound specification of each industry varies from one another. As a result, the thermoplastics are tested and their composition is analyzed to affirmatively determine the industry-relevant for them. The thermoplastics’ physical and mechanical properties are often tested to find out certain characteristics and properties, some of which are.

Specific Gravity

  • The ratio of the density of a thermoplastic to the density of water is determined to calculate the specific gravity.


  • By calculating the resistance of a thermoplastic to indentation, its hardness is determined.


  • The variation of length a thermoplastic can sustain until breakage is called elongation

Tensile Strength

  • The maximum nominal stress that the thermoplastic can endure when pulled from both ends is termed tensile strength.

Flexural properties (three-point bending method)

  • The three-point bending flexural test is used to calculate the values for the modulus of elasticity in bending, flexural stress, flexural strain, and the flexural stress-strain response of the thermoplastic material.
  • These mechanical and physical properties of polymers, fiber-reinforced polymeric composites immensely depend on the nature of the polymer, fiber, plies, and the fiber-matrix interfacial bonding, and so when these properties are put to test, the nature of the polymer and its constituents are revealed.
