Not only are the raw materials submitted to highly stringent testing for incoming goods inspection, but the finished thermal insulation products are tested for adherence to the quality requirements with a final test. Compression, tensile and flexure tests are performed on the single layer and multi layer XPS insulation panels and coated XPS insulation panels with the ProLine Z100 materials testing machine. The ProLine specifically targets standardized testing of materials and components. With easy handling and reliable test results obtained with the testXpert III testing software, the materials testing machine is ideal for the requirements imposed by Austrotherm. Depending on the results that are obtained, a decision is made on whether the insulation panels meet Austrotherm’s high quality expectations, and they are released for sale accordingly.
Austrotherm has trusted ZwickRoell testing machines and instruments for many years, and still employs a machine that dates back to 1991. The reliability, durability and longevity of the testing machines, as well as the reliability of the test results perfectly correspond with the high quality Austrotherm stands for.
