Material Testing

Material Testing

EUROLABWith its expert team and state-of-the-art laboratories, it offers advanced characterization tests to evaluate the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of materials, as well as quality control of materials and processes.

Material Testing

Our expertise in this area means we can play a role in the entire product lifecycle, including development, production and in-service phases. We work with a wide range of industries including aerospace, automotive, rail, marine, 3D printing, oil and gas, construction, machinery, and electrical and electronic products.

We specialize in testing a large number of materials, including:

  • Metallic materials, welded joints, different metals and super alloys (titanium, aluminum, duplex, super duplex, inconel, etc.)
  • With composite materials (carbon fiber and glass fiber) and fasteners
  • Composite materials
  • Polymeric materials: thermosets, thermoplastics, resins and rubbers
  • Coatings, galvanized materials, paints and varnishes
  • Building materials and products

EUROLABhas a network of ISO 17025 accredited materials laboratories and offers a wide range of accredited mechanical, physical and thermal testing. High complexity tests for material characterization (R curve, G1c, crack growth, high load coupons testing, etc.) that require a high level of technical knowledge are highly experienced in both conducting the tests and interpreting the results.

Our material laboratories are accredited by Nadcap and approved by the main aerospace manufacturers. These recognitions mean that we can work directly for these manufacturers as well as for their suppliers.

  • Received Nadcap approval for metallic and non-metallic material, non-destructive testing, panel fabrication, sample production and sample processing testing
  • Recognized by the Airbus group
  • Recognized by Saffron
  • Recognized by Honeywell
  • Recognized by Comac
  • Recognized by the Embaer

Some of our testing capabilities are as follows:

  • Production and preparation of test samples
  • Static and dynamic mechanical tests (at temperatures ranging from -196º to + 1200ºC)
  • Metallographic and fractographic analysis
  • Hardness tests (Shore, Vickers, Rockwell, Brinell)
  • Chemical analysis (OES and XRF)
  • Physical and thermal tests (DSC, DMA, TGA, FV, etc.)
  • Nondestructive testing
  • Corrosion and aging tests
