Tensile Testing and Compression Testing

Tension testing and compression testing of force is a material testing method that allows us to find the breaking point, elasticity, and even elongation of most materials. Tension and compression force testing is one of the most common material testing methods used to determine strength of material.

The team at Cross works in tensile and compression testing labs that have the capability to perform ISO 17025 accredited tension and compression tests up to 10,000 pounds of force and NIST traceable tests at even higher capacities. As certain materials are much different than others, our test engineers can work with your team to develop and implement customized testing solutions and ensure you have the reporting you need.
