How to optimise plastic pipe performance
Smithers polymer pipe experts discuss how you can have greater confidence in new pipe system installations and designs, from using optimal materials to taking a considered approach to sealing requirements.
Our independent testing facilities offer a comprehensive range of physical and chemical analytical tests for both plastic and rubber materials.
We have extensive sample preparation facilities which include the thickness reduction of rubber by slitting/buffing and a CNC machine. Our on-site molding capabilities ensure we are able to test a huge variety of materials and product forms.
Our laboratories are accredited to test to both ASTM and ISO standard test methods. Our experts will be able to create a custom testing program tailored to your project requirements.
