Rubber Testing Services

Polymer and elastomeric products, like rubber, are commercially very important because of their widespread applications which arise as a result of their properties like resistance to impact, toughness, and elasticity. Testing of these products is quite challenging because of the use of fillers to prepare customized items with a variety of uses. Spectro Research and Lab Ventures (P) Ltd. is thoroughly competent to carry out testing related to polymer and rubber products in accordance with various accepted national and international standards, and also provide customized testing services to clients.

The testing results help in achieving the following important goals:

  • Characterization of materials
  • Quality Control testing and Certification
  • Product Development
  • Reverse engineering
  • Failure Analysis
