Plastics testing

Plastic apron

Our UKAS accredited laboratory team has great expertise in testing polythene film products.

We are particularly experienced in the testing of sacks and bags for the collection and disposal of domestic, trade or garden refuse and clinical waste.

Our experienced team have developed specifications for these products which have been adopted extensively across the UK as the 'M' series specifications.

We can evaluate tender submissions for our clients and assist, with complete impartiality, in the contact award process. It is essential to ensure that subsequent deliveries continue to meet the specification so we therefore undertake a quality monitoring programme for clients at a level and cost to suit them.

We can also research and design specifications for a client's in-house use for refuse bags, packaging films, aprons and carrier bags and more.

Our plastic testing services include:

  • Tensile strength
  • Tear resistance
  • Drat impact resistance
  • Thickness
  • Dimensions
  • Handle durability – ultimate load and jogging tests to ensure that carrier bag handles are durable.
  • Print durability – rubbing tests
