The added value of testing
RIS Rubber has some of the most advanced testing facilities available. We invest in testing technology, because it contributes to a rapid and cost-effective development process. Our customers consequently benefit from a better product and lower costs.
Results set out in a test report
Our testing involves simulations of practice circumstances using factors such as force, displacement, temperature and frequency. By virtue of these testing methods we can assess with certainty whether products will meet the pre-determined requirements and can be safely applied in practice. Every test is accompanied by an extensive test report.
Using no fewer than four test benches, we can respond to any test demand rapidly and professionally. Thanks to these facilities, RIS Rubber can perform static, dynamic and shear tests. All test benches have been calibrated by an external agency, which is why we can also perform tests for third parties.
Static testing is carried out for moulded rubber products that will be immobile in use and on which a certain force is to be exerted. Spring stiffness is an essential element of static testing. Using a test bench, we can measure the static properties of a product, such as its axial, radial, torsion and cardanic rigidity. Loads can be exerted at any speed required. We can perform static testing from 20 to 2,000 tons, for dimensions up to 1,700 x 1,700mm as a maximum.
Dynamic testing is applied for moulded rubber products that will be moving. Damping of vibration and the degree of heat development are, among other things, essential elements of dynamic testing. We subject our products to pressure force and tensile force on our dynamic test bench to measure the maximum loadings of the moulded rubber products.
In addition to static and dynamic testing, RIS Rubber also offers the option of testing for shear. The new facility offers the possibility of loading a rubber product can be tested for shearing under compression. In the case of a fender, for example, the impact of lateral forces and deformations must be tested simultaneously.
