Standard tests

... provide the determination of gasket characteristics in

  • compression tests
  • leakage tests
  • compressive creep tests
  • creep relaxation tests

at room temperature or elevated temperatures (up to 400 °C / 750 °F) as well as under internal pressure (up to 200 bar / 2,900 psi).


Special tests

... for developing new gasket materials or screening tests according to special company specifications (e.g. petrochemical companies like Shell, Total, ...).

Fire-safe testing or blow-out testing is also possible in our laboratory.

User defined applications have been realized, too, e.g. tests for high-temperature applications up to 800 °C / 1,470 °F.

Tell us about your specifics – our technicians will work out a solution if technically possible.
