Tension tests provide information on the strength and ductility of materials under uniaxial tensile stresses. thyssenkrupp Laboratory Services can provide complete, reliable and prompt tensile testing to ASTM, JIS and/or EN standards (including n and r values). Testing is performed on a 22,000 # Instron frame with computerized data acquisition. Mechanical properties typically measured from a tension test include: Yield Strength, Tensile (Ultimate) Strength, Elongation, Yield Point Elongation, n and r values. Bake Hardening and Work Hardening Indexes can be determined according to national and customer standards.

To maximize precision and reliability of results, all of our sample specimens are carefully prepared by machining on our MILLTRONICS RW15 milling machine. This careful sample preparation reduces the conditions that can deleteriously affect the properties to be measured.
