  • A Commitment to Industry Standards

    KIYO R&D Center and Laboratory pride themselves on their dedication to following internationally recognized standards set by organizations such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). These standards ensure that testing methodologies are uniform, reliable, and applicable across the globe.

  • The Tensile Test - An Unrivalled Insight

    The tensile test is a cornerstone of mechanical testing for plastics. At KIYO, the process begins by carefully selecting standardized specimens, prepared with precision and adherence to ASTM D638 or ISO 527 guidelines. These dogbone-shaped samples are cut to specific dimensions to guarantee accurate and repeatable results.

  • State-of-the-Art Testing Equipment

    KIYO takes pride in its state-of-the-art testing equipment, meticulously calibrated to guarantee the utmost accuracy. Sophisticated universal testing machines exert a gradual tensile force on the specimens until they reach the breaking point. Advanced load cells and strain gauges precisely measure the applied force and deformation throughout the test.

  • Determining Tensile Strength with Precision

    Tensile strength is a critical parameter that measures a material's ability to withstand tension before failure. At KIYO, highly trained technicians carefully analyze the data obtained during the tensile test to determine this crucial property accurately. The results are reported in accordance with ASTM D638 or ISO 527 standards.

  • Assessing Yield Strength and Elongation at Break

    KIYO's expertise extends beyond mere tensile strength evaluation. By analyzing the stress-strain curve, they precisely determine the yield strength and the elongation at break of the tested plastics. This valuable data empowers engineers to make informed decisions regarding material selection and product design.

  • Modulus of Elasticity - A Measure of Stiffness

    Another key parameter assessed during the tensile test is the modulus of elasticity. KIYO's advanced testing equipment allows them to evaluate a material's stiffness accurately. This information is crucial for designing components with the desired level of rigidity and flexibility.

  • Beyond the Standards: Tailored Solutions

    While adhering to ASTM and ISO standards is a priority at KIYO, their expertise extends beyond these guidelines. The dedicated team collaborates closely with clients to tailor testing protocols based on specific requirements and industry applications, ensuring the most comprehensive and relevant results.
