Non-metallic material qualification and testing 

In addition to metals, the laboratory specializes in the testing of material performance and environmental compatibility for non-metallic materials, including coatings, elastomers, and thermoplastics.  The testing provides operators and OEMs with the confidence that the material will function reliably in the anticipated service environment. Typical analyses include:

  • Chemical compatibility testing
  • Lifetime estimation testing 
  • Thermal and mechanical property evaluations
  • Material Characterization
  • Coating evaluation, testing, and failure mode determination
  • Rapid depressurization testing
