Laboratory Testing

JFP Technical Services, Inc. materials and metallurgical laboratory provides quality control testing services. As an independent laboratory, we can provide evaluation for first piece and random sample inspection and testing. JFP Technical Services may be retained to assist with factory inspection or to provide support for inspection overflow. Our calibration is traceable to NIST.

Application Example:

Rubber to metal bonded parts perform contingent on metal hardness and strength, effective adhesion, and proper flow and cure of the rubber compound.

JFP Technical Services can be called upon to establish effective sampling methods, design fixtures for mechanical tests to simulate operating conditions, and then conduct tests on all elements of the sampled parts.

Through accumulation of progressive data, indications of mold degradation (wear or contamination) can be deduced and corrective action can be taken.
