Following advice of the UK government, the majority of our staff will be working from home until further notice. We are still contactable by e-mail and able to provide technical advice and quotations for work, but cannot guarantee a date for any new or current work to commence. The only staff in attendance in our laboratories over the next three weeks will be those working on essential compliance testing for the pharmaceutical industry.
Product and material testing
Rubber Consultants offers a comprehensive range of mechanical testing services conducted to most of the International, European and National rubber standards, as well as to manufacturers’ specific requirements. Evaluation of the physical properties of rubber and elastomeric materials are used to predict the performance in product applications.
We can advise and assist in the development of appropriate test methods where no standard test methods or specifications currently exist.
Latex products are well catered for at Rubber Consultants. We have a large-frame extensometer to pull latex samples to their maximum extensions, condom test machines, both inflation tester and electrical leak tester, to test to ISO 4074, and equipment to test latex gloves to EN 455.
