What is physical property testing and analysis?

Physical property tests evaluate the physical and mechanical characteristics of a specific material or product. Depending on the equipment and technology available at a given analytical testing lab, physical property testing can be conducted on numerous materials like polymers, resins, fabrics, metals, and much more. These materials can be put through a variety of physical tests to determine their tensile strength, density, hardness, and flexibility to name a few. The specific physical property testing that takes place largely depends on the material in question and the unique application for which it was designed.

Why is it important to perform a physical property analysis and test?

The goal of a physical testing laboratory is to help customers and businesses determine whether or not their products and processes meet industry requirements and performance standards. Physical property testing ensures a material or product does not violate health and safety standards in a specific industry or application. These important tests also greatly reduce the possibility of a material or product failing on the market and mitigate a company’s liability should such an event occur. 

Beyond meeting industry requirements and performance standards, analytical lab testing of a material’s physical properties is excellent for research and development. Physical properties testing can reveal solutions for improving the function and reducing the cost of a specific material or product. This allows customers and businesses to potentially cut costs, exceed performance standards, and improve their manufacturing processes.
