Mechanical Testing

BBA Test Services can measure the mechanical performance and strength characteristics for a wide range of materials and products. These tests can be carried out before and after artificial ageing to assess how these properties change with exposure and time.

Our Key Facilities:

  • Fatigue and crack bridging facility
  • Impact equipment (various)
  • Universal compression and tensile test machine
  • Security facilities (windows and doors)
  • Slip resistance equipment
  • Static/dynamic indent rigs
  • Wind loading and air pressure rig
Nail Tear

We undertake the following tests on mechanical products:

  • Bond strength
  • Compressive strength
  • Flexural properties
  • Impact resistance
  • Mechanical loading
  • Mechanical wind uplift and loading
  • Operation and strength
  • Security
  • Shear strength
  • Tensile properties

Mechanical testing is relevant to the following product areas:

  • Coatings
  • Doors and Windows
  • External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS)
  • Highways and Bridge Deck Waterproofing
  • Insulation
  • Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
  • Pipes and Drainage
