Tinius Olsen - Testing Plastics
Tinius Olsen helping Masterbatches producer towards Quality Perfection PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 08 July 2014 02:04


 A leading producer of Masterbatches and Compounds for the plastics industry, headquartered in Israel but with operations around the world, has invested in more quality control equipment from Tinius Olsen. The organization places high value on sustainability, and is dedicated to environmental, social and financial issues, making them one of the leading businesses in the industry.


 The organization develops, produces and sells cost-effective solutions which will ensure the evolution of top quality end products in areas such as packaging films (BOPP, CPP, PE), PC sheet, agricultural films and derivatives, biopolymers, flame retardant applications, PEX pipes, fibers and nonwovens. These quality goals and admirable values makes the investment in bench-top testing machines from Tinius Olsen, to join the ranks of melt indexers from Tinius Olsen already in use, an easy and straightforward decision.

 The addition of the tensile testers will ensure that the production of top quality end products in areas such as packaging films (BOPP, CPP, PE), PC sheet, agricultural films and derivatives, biopolymers, flame retardant applications, PEX pipes, fibers and nonwovens, continue to be as robust as they have always been.

TechnoNICOL Corporation in Russia manufactures slabs produced from extrusion-type expanded polystyrene. The TECHNONICOL XPS slab is a modern insulating material that is widely used in construction for the arrangement of insulation for foundations, roofs, floors, insulation of facades, and the thermal insulation of railways and highways.
This is insulating material with uniformly distributed closed cells, which do not absorb water, do not swell and shrink, and are chemical and rot-resistant. Its high strength allows for an even and simultaneously rigid foundation that significantly increases the service life of the entire thermal insulating system.
TechnoNICOL has been developing and working with these building materials for over 20 years and since 1992 has relied on Tinius Olsen for its quality control testing procedures. They have bought more than 10 machines from Tinius Olsen over the years and recently bought an H10kT machine for
tensile and compression tests on roofing materials and other polymer membranes in accordance with the Russian Standard GOST 2678 и GOST 17177.
