has several laboratories associated with universities of Excellence to conduct groundbreaking research.
This device has a 500-N load cell to determine the mechanical properties of plastic materials according to the ASTM D-882 standard. The device can determine tensile force, the percentage of elongation and elasticity by means of a traction assay. With accessories, this equipment measures the friction coefficient, providing the static and dynamic friction coefficients of flexible plastic materials.
