Plenco's Materials Engineering
Laboratory, with a staff of experienced technicians
and engineers, utilizes a broad range of equipment
and test instrumentation to provide technical
support for our customers.
include laboratory equipment for materials formulation
development. Additional pilot plant equipment
is used for sampling and scale-up evaluation.
Compression, transfer, injection, and injection-compression
process capabilities are used for molding test
specimens, customer prototyping, and trouble-shooting
molds. Also available is auxiliary equipment such
as preformers, preplasticizers, and preheaters.
Testing capabilities measure flammability, color-matching,
and environmental exposure. Dynamic fatigue, short-term
creep, Poisson's ratio, and other material characterizations
are tested per ASTM, ISO, JIS, and UL standards.
Plenco's Materials Engineering Laboratory has
established quality programs for proficiency training,
continuous improvement, and instrument calibration.
