If a test passes and you would like to buy the machine
then we will credit the testing fees towards your purchase.
Want to know if your plastic will extrude? Want to know what system will work best for your polymer? Use this service to evaluate the performance of your plastic with our systems.
Cost is for one polymer to be tested. Regardless of a pass or fail, testing services are non-refundable.
How It Works
- Customers send in 1/2 gallon of materials for extrusion testing, in pellet or solid form (See Below)
- After reviewing and discussing the needs of the filament with the customer, Filabot engineers extrude and use our machinery to test your specific materials. Choose from our Filabot EX2 or Filabot EX6.
- We'll send you our findings in a report, including data and information outlining the performance of your material on our machines.
- If the material passed we will mail the extruded filament back.
Pellet Extruding Test - $240
We test pellets provided by the customer to see if the plastic can be extruded using our Filabot extruder systems. We will provide documentation on the proper temperatures and set up procedures. The minimum amount of material needed for testing is a half gallon container accompanied by MSDS on the material. Customer mails the sample to our testing lab after placing an order.
Solid Grinding Extruding Test - $290
This is similar to the Pellet Extruding Test. This service should be selected when a customer has a solid piece of plastic, such as a plastic scrap. We will provide documentation on the proper temperatures and set up procedures. Minimum of a half gallon container of material necessary for testing, as well as MSDS on the material. Customer mails the sample to our testing lab after placing an order.
NDA Note: Do you have a polymer you want tested, but do not want us to release any information? Not a problem we at the lab will review and respect any NDAs that are needed to make the testing process as easy as possible.
