Tinius Olsen is the leading specialist manufacturer and supplier of static tension and/or compression materials testing machines. Our machines are designed for use in research departments and quality control departments to measure the strength and product performance of materials. Using Tinius Olsen equipment it is possible to perform such tests on raw materials such as metals, polymers, textiles, rubbers, adhesives and food as well as finished components.
A whole series of tests is available including procedures for tensile strength, shear strength, compressive strength, flexural strength, puncture and burst resistance, tear strength, peel strength, melt flow, Charpy and Izod impact strength, coefficients of friction, stiffness, deflection temperature under load determination, Vicat penetration and torsional strength. All of the tests are designed and implemented by Tinius Olsen in accordance with key international testing standards including ISO, ASTM, EN and other industrial standards.
