Determine the heat transfer coefficient of products and the energy efficiency of buildings.
The development of an energy efficient building entails having prior knowledge of the thermal performance of each one of the elements involved in its environmental quality, whether active or passive.
To market insulating products (walls, insulation, doors, etc.) and heating equipment (radiators, fireplaces, heaters, etc.), manufacturers must characterize and report their products' thermal performance.
Applus+ offers a comprehensive thermal evaluation and testing service to characterize construction products. Our service includes:
Our laboratories test under European and international regulations and perform the following determinations:
These tests and simulations are applicable to a wide variety of 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.
