Cost is for one polymer to be tested. Regardless of a pass or fail, testing services are non-refundable.
MSDS and TDS are required for testing. We are not able to extrude any material without these documents.
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.
Pellet Extruding Test - $375
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 - $425
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.
