Testing Service


Description

Filabot provides a testing service in a few different levels. More detailed descriptions are outlined below. Cost is for one polymer to be tested. Regardless of a pass or fail, testing services are not refundable. 

Pellet Extruding Test - $180.00

We test pellets provided from the customer to see if the plastic can be extruding using our Filabot Wee or Filabot Original extruder systems. We will provide documentation on the proper temperatures and set up procedures. Minimum of 1lb of material needed for testing, also a MSDS on the material is needed. 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 old plastic scrap. After grinding the solid pieces we test ground plastic in our Filabot Wee or Filabot Original extruding systems. We will provide documentation on the proper temperatures and set up procedures. Minimum of 1lb of material needed for testing, also a MSDS on the material is needed. Customer mails the sample to our testing lab after placing an order.

3D Printing Evaluation - $430.00

If the polymer passes the extruding test it can be evaluated for the use in the FDM 3D printing application. We have a range of tests that we use to evaluate for the specific properties, such as layer adhesion, max speeds, cooling needed, etc. With out gained knowledge from filament extrusion and 3D printing we can provide valuable incite into the polymers being tested.
