Rubber testing products

Wallace supply quality products to the rubber and plastic industry. We design and manufacture a wide range of instruments and test equipment which is used in over 60 countries worldwide.

Compression stress relaxation is being increasingly adopted by aerospace, automotive and construction industries to characterise elastomeric seals.

The Wallace High Precision Densimeter is a cost efficient inspection instrument, calculating an accurate measurement of specific gravity resolution to three decimal places.

Wallace flexing machines test specially moulded rubber samples for resistance to cracking by repeated flexing.

Hardness tests (resistance to indentation) is one of the most widely measured properties used to characterise rubber.

Wallace provides the full range of Shore and IRHD hardness testers to the rubber, polymer, plastics and scientific industries.

Our proven C-frame design provides rigidity for unrivalled stability and repeatability of results.
A selection of accessories complement our range.
Wallace has recently launched the upgraded version of the hardness tester range with greater accuracy, upgraded software and greater connectivity.

“Software allows for ease of data capture and analyses.”.
Operation and daily verification of the instruments require minimal training.

“Doing the same thing over and over expecting the same result”.
We have completed a Gage R&R study which gives system repeatability and reliability of 99%.

....and Simplicity go hand in hand.
“Our Hardness Testers are simple to operate with one-time set up and simple one finger operation”.
Operation and daily verification of the instruments require minimal training.
Accessories like the O-ring table and ability to use barcode scanners improve productivity.

We realise that different customers have different needs. Our instruments are designed to favour stability, reliability and repeatability which some customers may perceive as inflexibility.
Our research shows that customers also favour these attributes but often need to do more.
A standard set of easily interchangeable sample tables provide for specific applications

Rapid plasticity is one of the basic tests used in the natural rubber industry, and is the measurement of compression of a specimen of known thickness at a known temperature under a predetermined load for a known time.  A key measurement in determining the quality of natural rubber is known as the Plasticity Retention Index (PRI).  This measures the resistance of natural rubber to thermal oxidation.

Wallace provide a fully integrated and highly productive solution for determining PRI:

Prepare and cut your test samples from rubber (and other materials) using our specimen cutting press and preparation equipment.

The perfect choice of accurate and easy-to-operate instruments for all professionals involved in laboratory testing of natural, synthetic or compounded rubber.
