This video quickly describes the tensile testing procedure for plastics materials, in this case HDPE. All important pieces of equipment are shown, a test is performed so you can clearly see the behaviour of HDPE during the test and sample results are displayed.
As petrol prices continue to increase, it is affecting everyone and in particularly the troops fighting in wars. This video shows how the United States military has given Quantum Technologies the task to develop new fighting vehicles based on hydrogen engines. Shows how they make use special polymers with carbon fibres to develop the strength of the vehicles. Testings were done on the tanks firing with different weapons. The vehicles they developed utilize water (H2O) as fuel. An interesting film showing applications of hydrogen engines.

A video clip detailing the process of plastic injection molding from automatic/manual raw material introdction through to the raw product. Also outlined is how external heating fans are used to introduce additional heat to the injection barrel. These are controlled by thermocouples to moderate the amount of heat they add.
A video showing how chemists have used CO2 which we commonly relate to pollution, to make environmentally friendly plastics. These platics are cheaper than plastics made from petroleum. They are biodegradable than polyethylene and other polymers commonly used in plastic production.
A video clip showing the production of plastic bottles. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is used in the production of plastic bottles. This video clip shows the entire production process of plastic bottles. Plastic preforms are made by injection molding, followed by a reheat stretch blow molder which creates the final shape. The machine in this video manufactures 10600 bottle per hour. Final inspection and testing of the plastic bottles to ensure application suitability is also covered.
A video demonstrating different automated testing systems for tensile, bend and impact tensile tests on seven different types of plastics
Nasa Advanced Materials Research Lab demonstrate how reflective materials are made and work. Developing reflective plastic films made from polymer solution with metal ions and than cured which gives the reflective plastics. The applications of reflective plastics in aerospace industry.
The FlashLine series from Anter Corp is able to determine various thermal properties of a wide range of materials using the laser flash method. The properties that the FlashLine can determine include thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity. The modular unit allows thermal properties to be determined at a range of temperatures from cryogenic to 2800°C.

It offers you a totally portable way to locate materials solutions, suppliers and products as well as providing you with the latest materials news, conveniently broken down into categories to suit various industry sectors.
This is an instructional video showing how to make a mold from silicone rubber. Silicone rubber molds provide high accuracy and self releasing properties. They are also heat resistance, possess excellent tear strength and elongation and are suited to a wide variety of mold applications and can be used to cast a range of materials.
There is a growing group of homeowners around the world that is turning to green materials when it comes to renovating their house or building their house. However finding green products is not as easier as it seems. This video clip give the viewer ideas on the products that is currently available for keeping your home "green" and most importantly where to find these products. Go Green!!
ThermoFab launched its Thermoforming Superhero video. The Superhero was created to provide a fresh, fun explanation on the process of thermoforming plastics and on ThermoFab's unique capabilities to go from concepts on a napkin to finished product in 6 weeks.
A video clip showing the process of extrusion blow molding which describes the use of the center feed assembly and the side-feed assembly. Also discuss the different types of dye tooling
Zwick robotic testing system 'roboTest R' with materials testing machine 200 kN for tensile tests on plastics according to standards like (ISO 6892, EN 10002, ISO 527,ISO 3167, ASTM D 638, ASTM E 8, EN 10002, JIS Z 2241)
A video clip showing how composites are replacing many of today's materials. In particular aircraft wing structure are now commonly made of carbon fibre composite layers held together by epoxy resisn which produce a material that is light, strong and rigid. Piezoelectric fibres which can change shape or morph from one shape to another are paving way for new wing designs.
