Materials Testing

A NETWORK OF MATERIALS TESTING LABORATORIES

 
Applus+ has a network of materials testing laboratories spread across Europe, Asia and the United States. These laboratories carry out quality control and advanced characterisation in order to assess materials mechanical and physical properties. Our expertise in this field means that we can play a role in the development, manufacturing and in-service phases for industries including aerospace, automotive, rail, maritime, 3D printing, oil and gas, construction, machinery and electrical and electronic products.

ISO 17025 AND NADCAP ACCREDITATION AND CLIENT RECOGNITIONS

The Applus+ materials laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited, thus guaranteeing the quality and traceability of our results, and they are also accredited by NADCAP for metallic materials tests, non-metallic (composite) materials tests, non-destructive tests and production of CFRP samples. Our materials laboratories have also been approved by the primary aerospace manufacturers, meaning that we can work directly for them as well as for their suppliers.

MATERIALS TESTING CAPABILITIES

Our test laboratories characterise metallic materials and welds, composite materials and hybrid joints, plastics and resins, and construction materials. Our testing capabilities include:
  • Preparation and manufacture of test samples
  • Mechanical testing (at temperatures ranging from -196º to +1200ºC)
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Metallography and analysis
  • Physical-chemical testing on composite materials

A COMPREHENSIVE MATERIALS TESTING SERVICE

Support in the development and engineering phases:
  • Materials characterisation
  • Development of test plans
  • Qualification of materials and products
Quality control during the production phase:
  • Inspection of incoming raw materials
  • Process quality control
  • Release testing
  • First part qualification (FPQ) and witness testing
  • Fault analysis

FROM COUPONS TO LARGE COMPONENTS

Applus+ Laboratories’ network of mechanical testing laboratories for components and structures allow us to test the properties of materials at a range of levels: from the characterisation of small test samples or coupons through to the mechanical testing of large components and subcomponents with a view to assessing their structural resistance.
