Product and Component Testing

Kemtron recognises the importance of quality and consistency in electrically conductive elastomer manufacture.

Kemtron recognises the importance of quality and consistency in electrically conductive elastomer manufacture.

With this in mind;

  • We specify, batch control and trace all raw materials.
  • Control compounding with robust procedures and batch test every mix with calibrated test equipment to ensure batch to batch consistency and conformance to our published data sheets.
  • Use certified and approved outside test laboratories.
  • Batch control and trace all manufacturing including materials, tools, equipment and operators. The controls are embedded into our certified management system that we have held since 1988. All the above is overseen by our QA department and our in-house qualified Polymer Engineer / Chemist ensuring proven consistency and traceable results.

Electrically conductive elastomers are batch produced and each and every batch has 3 primary tests before being released to production. The three tests are volume resistivity, shore hardness and specific gravity. Other tests that are not performance critical are done less often and these include, elongation at break, tear strength, compression set and accelerated aging.
