Mechanical Property Testing

To met the requirements of our customers, Royal offers a variety of mechanical and physical property testing tools that validate incoming material and verify processes. Royal is equipped with the following testing capabilities: 

  • Mechanical testing (up to 10K in both elevated and room temperature environments)
  • Glass transition temperature (Tg) via Dynamic Mechanical Analysis.
  • Tensile –strength and modulus – RT to 500 degrees F
  • Compressive – strength and modulus
  • Climbing drum peel
  • Flatwise tensile
  • Flexural
  • Ducting - Pneumatic flow & leakage testing
    • Pressure - 0-50 psi
    • Leakage
  • Flammability- .855 (12 second vertical test)
  • Prepreg testing including resin content, volatiles, and flow

 Examples of tests performed include interlaminar shear, lap shear, flatwise tension, ultimate tension strength and modulus.
