Compression testing is done in laboratory to evaluate the behavior of a material subjected to a sustained load until its breaking point or up to a certain limit. A suite of tests that measure fundamental variables like stress, strain, deformation, elastic modulus, yield, stiffness, and rupture characteristics is used to understand the material’s ability to recover from a specified compressive load. In most cases, the primary goal is to determine the maximum stress a specimen can withstand over a fixed period under constant or progressive load. By testing these properties in testing labs, engineers can better understand a material’s suitability for a specific application or a product’s performance under anticipated load conditions. Most materials and products are subjected to compressive forces during their lifecycle. Some examples include polymers, composites, elastomers, electronic components, construction materials, laminates, fibers, thin films, plastics, metals, and biomaterials.
Compression testing can play a vital role in evaluating the components’ strength, characterizing materials’ properties, or assessing finished products’ performance. ASTM, ISO, or IEC testing standards or compression strength measurements are available for various industries during product development, production, or quality control. Customized testing is often performed for specific characterization or failure analysis studies.
Our testing labs are well equipped to carry out compression testing and provide the best results to our clients based in the USA and other parts of the world. We at Infinita Lab perform not only routine tests, but also custom tests designed in our testing labs as per the client’s specific requirements.

ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
