Evaluate the behavior of a material when faced with weather cycles and accelerated aging conditions
Manufacturers of construction products should ensure that the materials used are functionally operational throughout the building's lifetime. Before launching a new product in the market, they should evaluate how it will behave when faced with cycles that accelerate the operating conditions to which it will be subjected.
Applus+ offers a wide range of weathering and aging tests for construction products in order to characterize them according to their nature and end use. Our laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited. Our service covers:
We carry out tests according to European and international standards for the following products, among others:
Likewise, these tests or equivalent ones are applicable to other construction products.
We have proven quality-accredited laboratories (ISO 17025) to test construction products. Our testing capabilities allow us to fully characterize the products using numerous technologies (mechanical, acoustic, and thermal behavior, reaction to fire, physical-chemical characterization of materials, etc.), thus adjusting the time and costs needed to characterize your product.
Applus+ is also Notified Body under the Construction Products Regulations and provides CE Marking services for construction materials and products.
