Material Testing Facility

Our on-site material testing facility (MTF) allows us to reliably, efficiently and professionally test our products with fast and accurate reporting of test results. Our test equipment undergoes regular maintenance and calibration in-line with industry standards.

MTF ensures that we produce products of the highest quality standard that is verified. Our test technicians are all trained and certified in the use of all equipment, ensuring that tests are accurately executed. MTF also assists us in new product development, allowing us to test the performance of new products ensuring that they meet the rigid technical specification that our clients demand. Our material testing facility has the following capabilities.

Material testing is the execution of highly specific techniques that measure the characteristics and behaviour of materials. The test data obtained is then used to determine the suitability of the material for specific applications.
Material testing is important because it determines the performance of a specific material or product under certain conditions. If a material or product is to be successful in its application, then it needs to pass every specific requirement that the product needs to deliver on. Material testing is also used to determine a material or products limitations. This will enable manufacturers to determine which applications best suit the specific material. For Zack Plas it is critical that we test our materials and products regularly to ensure that they continue to deliver superior technical performance to meet our customers’ needs.

Temperature Testing

Used to evaluate the behaviour of a product or material when exposed to varying temperatures in order to establish how the product will respond to environmental changes during use

Friction & Coefficient Testing

Used to determine the frictional properties of a material or product when two surfaces in contact slide against each other.

Impact Resistance Testing

Used to evaluate the deformation or fracturing that a material will exhibit after experiencing a shock load.

Environmental Stress Cracking Testing

Stress cracking results in failure of plastic materials and therefore it is important for manufacturers to test the environmental stress crack resistance of all materials used, to determine the longevity of its products.

Bending Resistance Testing

Used to determine the bend or kink resistance of a material The material is bent continuously until failure occurs determining both the load and deflection required to initiate the break limit.

Crush Resistance Testing

Used to measure the maximum compressive load a material can withstand before it deforms, fractures or shatters.

Pressure Testing

Used to check the integrity of all couplings, joints and duct route to ensure that there are no leaks where moisture could penetrate through.

Duct Integrity Testing (DIT)

Used to check that the duct is ready for fibre installation by testing various parameters such has duct alignment, air tightness, foam sponge test, mandrill test.

ACCREDITATIONS

All of our product development, manufacturing and testing is carried-out to the highest quality standard and as such, we are currently restructuring our internal policies and processes so that we become ISO 9001 : 2015 compliant.
Zack Plas is compliant with Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) and currently holds a Level 2 certificate.
