In the fascinating world of materials characterization, Benelux Scientific distributes measuring and testing equipment for the determination of mechanical and physical properties of materials. We focus on sales and application support in the following application areas: 

Mechanical properties

  • Tensile and compression testers
  • Impact testers for plastics and metals
  • Dynamic and static friction
  • Hardness testers for metal and rubber
  • Thickness gauges
  • Welding equipment for films
  • Physical characterization (corrugated) cardboard
  • Stress-strain curves for metals via Profilometry-based Indentation Plastometry (PIP)

Particle characterization

Determine the size, shape and stability of powders, particles, emulsions and suspensions by following techniques:

Viscosity and rheology

Colour analysis

  • Visual and automated colour measurement on transparent liquids
  • Reflectance spectrophotometers for solid substrates, powders and non-transparent liquids
