Independent Testing Laboratories Directory

The following grid lists the types of testing offered by
independent testing laboratories. Tests for physical testing
of rubber include stress/strain tests; time-dependent tests;
destructive tests; durability; electrical properties; and
processing. Tests for chemical analysis of raw materials
and rubber are broken down into spectrophotometry,
spectrometry and spectroscopy; chromatography; thermal
analysis; and microscopy. Each of these subdivisions
is further broken down into the specific type of tests.
