Innovation Resources

Polymer Testing & Engineering Services

Stress Engineering’s Polymer Laboratory offers standalone testing services for many polymer characterization methods. We provide high quality test data and analytical reports at competitive rates, whether for one sample or 100 samples.

Polymers, Elastomers and Composites

SES offers a full range of R&D, failure analysis and analytical characterization support services. The growth of polymers, elastomers and composites is not limited to the durable and non-durable consumer and medical products industries, but also includes manufacturing equipment components, industrial products, oilfield equipment and pipeline repair. SES has invested heavily in staffing and polymer characterization/testing instruments. A new polymer materials services facility has been constructed in SES’s centrally located Ohio facility to meet the growing demand for this work. The labs include a broad range of equipment necessary to evaluate the very complex polymer-related materials challenges for our clients.

Measure Real World Forces on Almost Anything

Strain Gage Instrumentation is used to determine actual loads that are carried and transferred through products, machinery and packages. The most common reasons to apply strain gages include: assessing the root causes of failures, developing specifications for new equipment, determining if the capacity of a particular piece of equipment can be safely increased or evaluating the opportunity to increase the throughput of a particular process.

Address the Challenge of Elastomers (and Polymers) in HPHT Service

Stress Engineering Services has expanded conventional environmental compatibility testing methodology to include testing protocols that enable service life estimates. There is a very bright light shining on elastomer performance when used in critical oilfield applications. Upstream high pressure, high temperature elastomer sealing applications are marked by harsh service conditions: high pressures, high temperatures, contact with hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide and a plethora of engineered, particle-laden fluids that also include aggressive chemistry. The demand to understand true in-service performance has never been greater.

Validation of Creep Testing Equipment & Methodology

Stress Engineering’s Remaining Life Assessment Laboratory- Responding to the needs of the refining, chemical and power industries to conduct remaining life assessments on aging plants, SES set out to develop a state-of-the-art laboratory to generate the required high temperature creep data. Now calibrated against independent standards, the creep testing methods and machines have been demonstrated to deliver accurate data.

Analytical Lab Services - Polymers, Elastomers & Composites

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)

SES provides physical, chemical, mechanical and thermal analysis of a broad range of materials. From the non-metallic world of polymers, elastomers, and polymer based composites to liquids and lubricants, and also traditional metallic materials, SES has the experience to identify and develop the test method required, conduct the testing, and interpret the results.

Transportation Forces

Measuring & Monitoring Transportation Forces On Vehicles and Products

Remote Transportation Data

For understanding damage to a product or package being transported or a failure occurring on a vehicle (truck, train, airplane, ship) during transit, SES can collect a broad range of data documenting every foot of the journey, almost anywhere in the world.

Stress’ Creep Laboratory

Creep Laboratory for High Temperature Remaining Life Assessment:  Our facility includes 68 fully instrumented creep machines ranging in capacity from 3000 lbs up to 100,000 lbs.

Real Time Aging
