Each specimen that PRO blanket bars produces comes with a printout of the results. If a specimen does not pass the tensile test or barely passes it, an analysis describes the likely cause of the error.
• Normal tensile test of blanket attached to bar
• Tensile test at various temperatures
• Tensile test after storage in various fluids
• Long-term constant load test
• Special tests in accordance with customer‘s requirements
Claims: The first step to optimization
In case of claims, PRO blanket bars offers aid in the form of analyses. All the influencing factors in the bar-glue-blanket system are checked in a very detailed process.
The documentation of the appraisal contains pictures, microscope photos and technical analyses. One important goal is to exclude sources of errors for the future.
Contents of an analysis:
1. Clarification of the circumstances
2. Visual description of the blanket applied to the bar
3. Surface analyses
4. Measurement of the blanket applied to the bar
5. Detailed analysis by microscope (where necessary)
6. Determination and preparation of the hypothesis
Glue tests and selection
The large number of different blankets means that the glue doesn’t always achieve the desired results. Therefore, PRO blanket bars regularly tests numerous glues and types of glues.
The cooperation with glue manufacturers and the resulting knowledge base puts PRO blanket bars in a position to find a good solution for special application scenarios in the shortest period of time.
To select the right glue, only a sample blanket is required. The selection and testing of the glue‘s specific suitability takes place in accordance with the testing services described under „Analysis and testing of glues.“
