Welded joints are a potential site of weakness in a plastic structure. As such, it is important to be able to indicate that a welded joint is fit for purpose. This can be achieved by appropriate mechanical testing techniques.
Our computerised machining capabilities allows us to cater for any specific client requirements.
There are several standard test methods for welded plastic joints. Many of these methods were developed by the plastic pipe industry as quality control techniques for welding processes. Destructive tensile tests are perhaps the most common methods used to characterise welds.
