Locking Devices Tested For Sustainability

In order for these devices to remain effective throughout, it remains a good idea to subject them to rigorous testing. For the testing of a pro-lock valve lock system to be effective and sustainable, the testing procedures need to take account of the system’s specifications.

pro-lock valve lock system

Here is a brief example. A pro-lock valve lock system is injection molded. It is molded from a product known as Atofina. This material is an impact copolymer polypropylene, abbreviated to PPC 7650 for industry use specification.

Known to the technician will be the system’s sustainability features. This will include excellent impact resistance, as the case will be for the numerous applications that could be made. Such applications will include those made to motor cars. These include the vehicle’s battery cases and car bumpers.

The testing procedures are material. These are being done to industry standards. And they are able to cover a wide range of temperatures. They are also being done in line with the globally recognized ISO standards. Temperature ranges covered go as deep as minus 50 degrees to as high as fifty-five degrees Celsius. The description given to these far-ranging tests are drop tests. The objective for the technician concerned will be to identify or promote zero deterioration in strength.

Other positive factors that will be sought include the valve lock system’s resistance to oils and greases. And the system must be stabilized in response to any impact made by UV rays.

By now, the implications of a failed locking system should be clear enough to the interested reader. Untested and untreated, if the locking device is allowed to malfunction, it puts a driver and his passengers at risk. It nullifies the practice of ‘securing the premises’. Integrity of stored materials and products could be negatively impacted as a result of failures.
