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.
- We'll send you our findings in a report, including data and information outlining the performance of your material on our machines.
Pellet Extruding Test - $180.00
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 - $260.00
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. After grinding the solid pieces, we test ground plastic in our Filabot Wee or Filabot Original extruder systems. 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.
