Strain Hardening Test

The ISO 18488 test method determines the Strain Hardening Modulus with which the slow crack growth of Polyethylene pipes and fittings is evaluated. With the growing market share of crack resistant polymers, this test is particularly useful to be able to distinguish, for example, PE 100 from PE 100-RC grades. Therefore Becetel has invested in equipment and training to be able to carry out this test.
