materials testing

cover your specific needs within set deadlines

Find your profile needs test and choose your own parameters to suit your requirements.

We provide specific materials testing, destructive or not, for any special need our costumer may face in their business area. We assist in selecting or designing the test procedure that would provide you with the data for prototypes and your product development.

Tests are conducted on material, single part and full component scale, typically in the fully equipped laboratory but if required can also be set up at Customer's site.

Contact us and ask our experts what is best for you

Typical range of tests are:

  • Mechanical testing

in a wide range of materials in order to certify the compliance to standard specifications and requirements of the customer:
  • Metals and Weldings

  • tensile,
  • bending,
  • impact,
  • hardness,
  • macrographic and
  • micrographic examination
  • Plastics and Composite materials

  • tensile,
  • bending,
  • compression,
  • hardness,
  • impact,
  • shearing,
  • punching,
  • flexural,
  • peel
  • Building materials

  • compression,
  • flexion,
  • friction,
  • slip resistance
The laboratory owns a machine shop for the handling and treatment of bulky and heavy samples as well as experienced and trained personnel for the preparation of test specimens according to the standards.
We also offer:
  • heat treatment of samples, if needed

  • Ageing and Corrosion testing

according to international specifications to a wide range of materials such as:
metals, weldings, coatings, paints, plastics, building materials, textiles, leather, etc.,
for certification of compliance, evaluation, comparison, life expectancy calculation.
Main tests are: 
  • Salt spray test
  • Corrosive environment application
  • Artificial ageing by UV light and moisture
  • Artificial ageing by temperature changes application
  • Fluid and solid waste
  • Metallurgical examination

The laboratory carries out metallurgical tests on samples of materiasl and weldings in order to:
   - detect superficial or internal discontinuities,
   - ascertain the microstructure and the grain size of the material and its welding,
   - determine coating thickness,
   - assess the thermal treatment they have been subjected to and
   - determine eventually their compliance with the standards.
Methods used are: stereoscopy, optical microscopy (x1000) and electron microscopy (x150000), combined with hardness and chemical analysis.
  • Chemical analysis

Chemical analysis services include qualitative and quantitative methods.

Physical, wet chemistry and instrumental methods are used to determine material composition, elemental content and trace elements.
