Ambient and High Temperature Mechanical Testing for the Space Industry
Ambient and high temperature mechanical testing is a key technique used to understand the behavior of materials and assess mechanical properties in real-life situations.
Our knowledge and experience of ambient and high temperature mechanical testing means we understand the challenges and complexities of simulating complex real-life loading scenarios. The elevated temperature environments in which materials are required to perform can present a wide range of issues relating to property evaluation. Our years of expertise, partnered with state-of-the-art ISO 17025 and Nadcap compliant facilities, enables us test your materials under standard and product-specific loading configurations.
What makes us different?
- We have experience of assessing mechanical properties of components manufactured for spacecraft structures
- We act as an extension of your internal capabilities, complementing your knowledge and solving any problems that may exist – saving you time, money and resources
- We provide solutions, not just test results.
We have a wide range of mechanical testing capabilities from sub-ambient (-130°C) to high temperature (1650°C) including:
- Bend testing
- Charpy impact
- Coating bond strength
- Flexural strength
- Gardner impact
- Hardness (Brinell, Knoop, Rockwell, Shore, Vickers)
- Shear strength
- Stress rupture
- Tensile strength
- Poisson's Ratio.
