    • Durometer (Scale A and D): for hardness testing of polymers and rubbers

Chemical Analysis

    • Optical Emission Spectrometry (Arc-Met): chemical analysis of metals
    • X-ray Fluorescence (XRF): non-destructive chemical analysis of metals and non-metals

X-ray Analysis

    • X-ray Diffraction (XRD): identification of crystalline compounds in metals

Thermal Analysis

    • Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA): determines the changes in decomposition mass as a function of temperature that is unique to the polymer
    • Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC): determines the thermal transitions during phase transition as a function of temperature that is unique to the polymer
    • Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA): measure coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) as a function of temperature

Spectroscopic Analysis

    • Fourier Transform Infrared Analysis (FTIR): identification of organic materials or polymers
    • Raman Spectroscopy: complementary to FTIR, identification of chemical structure of compounds

Mechanical Testing

    • Universal Testing Machine: tensile and compression testing of materials
