With a range of niche
capabilities supported by strategic partnerships in both industry
and academia, WMT&R, Ltd. is no ordinary testing house. Services
include: tensile and compression testing of light materials, thin sheet,
wire, and foil testing,
bonding evaluations, coated products evaluation,
Composites testing, and various
corrosion testing methods.
Surface roughness is an
important parameter for many material applications. For example;
lubricant retention properties in press tool dies and flow
characteristics for fluid delivery systems. At WMT&R, Ltd. surface
topography data can be derived using the
Our Monitor Slip and
Friction Tester allows quantitative measurements for static and
kinetic coefficients of friction of Plastic Film and Sheeting. Standards
covered include ASTM D1894 - 01 and certain TAPPI (Technical Association
of the Pulp and Paper Industry), including TAPPI T549 for uncoated
writing and printing paper, and TAPPI T816 for corrugated and solid
An Pneumatic Adhesion
Tester with a maximum available Adhesion test of 70MPa enables us to
perform Adhesion tests on coatings, (including thermal metal sprayed),
paints, laminates, bonded joints, etc. to standards such as ASTM D4541,
BS EN 24624, ISO 24624, BS EN 22063.
The intrinsic properties
of an adhesive may be obtained through the use of bulk adhesive
Different to many conventional testing companies, we also have
the capability to pursue research work for unique situations. We
actively seek collaboration with
partners and industrial groups for more "cutting-edge"
investigations. Our relationships with
NDT Services Limited
and certain British Universities, are prime examples.
Together with our in
house testing facilities, we can offer customers a wide range of
services relating to wear, failure analysis and
corrosion issues and in particular
painted surfaces. This may be in the form of routine test campaigns,
investigative projects, or consultative advice, with access to a depth
of knowledge in the subject that is second to none.
