Sheet Moulding Press

As per ASTM D1693

Sheet Moulding Presses (SMPs) are not typically used in polymer testing. SMPs are primarily utilized in the manufacturing and shaping of polymer components through the Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) process. They are not directly involved in polymer testing procedures.

When it comes to polymer testing, other equipment and methods are used to assess the properties and performance of polymer materials. Some common equipment used in polymer testing include:

Tensile Testing Machines:

Tensile testing machines measure the tensile properties of polymers, such as tensile strength, elongation at break, and Young's modulus. These machines apply controlled tensile forces to specimens to evaluate their mechanical behavior.

Impact Testing Machines:

Impact testing machines, such as Charpy or Izod testers, measure the impact strength of polymers by subjecting them to a controlled impact force. These tests assess the material's resistance to sudden impacts.

Hardness Testers:

Hardness testers, such as durometers, evaluate the hardness of polymers. They measure the material's resistance to indentation or penetration, providing insights into its stiffness or flexibility.


Rheometers are instruments used to study the flow and deformation behavior of polymer melts. They measure parameters such as viscosity, shear stress, and shear rate, providing information about the material's processing characteristics.

Thermal Analysis Instruments:

Instruments like differential scanning calorimeters (DSC) and thermogravimetric analyzers (TGA) are used to study the thermal properties of polymers, including melting temperature, glass transition temperature, and thermal stability.

These are just a few examples of the equipment used in polymer testing. The specific testing methods and equipment chosen depend on the properties being assessed and the requirements of the testing standards or specifications.
