Bonnin instrument is a physical and mechanical laboratory equipments manufacturer of a wide range including mechanical test, environmental test, package test, furniture test, etc. Impacts, tensile properties and other material testing equipments widely used by various types of industries. Environmental test chambers including vibrations, temperature, humidity, corrosion, UV testing chamber.
Common mechanical Testing
Mechanical Testing machine evaluates metals under conditions such as tension, compression and temperature. Tensile testing for specimens and fasteners, elevated temperature tensile tester using a furnace. Stress rupture and dreep testing machine comply with ASTM standards and can be performed at temperatures up to 2000°F. Rockwell, brinell & vickers hardness Tester is available for metals, while a Shore durometer is performed on plastics. Impact testing machine on metal, plastic specimen.
Plastic Rubber testing, including mechanical tests like tensile, notched Izod impact and rockwell hardness; melt flow rate, viscosity and capillary rheometry, flammability and oxygen index; analytical tests like differential scanning calorimetry, thermal tests like Vicat softening, heat deflection temperature and coefficient of thermal expansion; optical tests like gloss and color; in accordance to ASTM, ISO, or UL plastics tests you required.
Environmental chamber exposure services to help you validate and/or predict how your product will perform under anticipated or extreme temperature and relative humidity conditions. Material and/or equipment failure can occur during storage, shipping or actual use and sometimes at the worst possible time. With years of experience in material testing and product testing our staff can help you challenge your product with environmental chamber simulations. Environmental chamber exposure can also be used to induce accelerated aging on your products. We can also further assist you by doing vibration, mechanical or actual use simulations.
UV testing chamber for any product or assembly you may want to validate for light/UV exposure. Product failures (cracking, fading, chalking, etc.) due to light exposure, either indoor or outdoor, can turn into a nightmare in terms of customer satisfaction and warranty issues. Any kind of light, artificial or natural, whether it passes through glass or not, emits a UV spectrum to some extent. We can duplicate that spectrum in our UV testing laboratory on an accelerated basis to assess your product’s UV sensitivity. We can also recreate field failures in the lab by challenging your product with other types of stresses such as climatic chamber, accelerated corrosion, or material testing. Examples of our UV exposure tests include ASTM G154 for accelerated weathering and ASTM G155 for Xenon Arc, simulating exposure to natural sunlight.
Salt Spray testing
Salt Spray Test offers a variety of corrosion tests that will enable you to test your products for material degradation and coating resistance to water. Corrosion testing is often performed using ASTM B117, however, other tests can also be used, including ASTM D1654, ASTM D1735, ASTM 2247, ASTM 5894 as well as ASTM G44 and ASTM G85. We also carry our cyclic corrosion testing and salt spay testing.
Weatherometer testing chamber, to help you simulate on an accelerated basis how your product will perform under sunlight and other UV light sources. Material failure due to ultraviolet radiations can cause damage from an aesthetic stand point (color fading) as well as more structural problems such as surface cracking. With years of experience in weatherometer testing our staff can help you challenge your product to help you avoid UV aging related issues.
Package testing Using industry standards such as ASTM D4169, ISTA, NCC, ISO and others; we will put together a test plan for you that simulates as close as possible your distribution process including storage, ambient temperature, relative humidity, stacking, vibrations and impacts.
Package testing equipment as ASTM D4169 and all ISTA standards inclusively, MIL-STD 810, NMTFA rule 180 & 181 and other standards. Our approved laboratory can test all package types from small parcels, ISTA 3A , to complete pallet loads . We also offer package testing on components and raw materials; TAPPI , ASTM and others.
BIFMA testing. Office chairs are tested to BIFMA X5.1 while sofas are tested to BIFMA X5.4 . Desk products are tested to BIFMA X 5.5 whereas Storage cabinets are tested to BIFMA X 5.9 and panel systems to BIFMA X 5.6 .
Coating Adhesive Testing
We do surface coating testing equipment as ASTM D522, ASTM D523, as well as ASTM D2240, ASTM D3359, ASTM D4060 and many others.
