  • compression testing of plastic foam
  • measuring the elongation/return characteristics of plastics, rubber and elastomers
  • measuring the initial 'slip' torque and 'bridge' torque on plastic tamper-evident closures
  • pull-off and insertion/withdrawal testing of plastic fasteners
  • release and application torque of plastic closures
  • tensile and material strength testing of:
    • conveyor belts
    • gaskets and o-rings
    • rubber and plastic flooring
    • shoe soles
    • tyres
  • top-load testing of plastic containers, e.g. PET bottles
