Total control of the production chain from dust to the semi-finished product makes for high quality materials. Our in-house laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that allows us to achieve high standards of measurement and fast and highly reliable processes.

In particular, the laboratory’s equipment fleet includes:

  • Analytical scale:
    Allows density determination (Standard Specific Gravity)
  • Shore-A Durometer:
    Allows determination of surface hardness on a Shore-A scale
  • Shore-D Durometer:
    Determination of surface hardness on the Shore-D scale
  • IRHD Micro Durometer:
    Determination of the IRHD hardness of components with complex shapes and small dimensions
  • Ball Indentation Hardness Durometer:
    Determination of the hardness of plastic materials by means of a ball indenter subjected to a load.
