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
  • Compression
  • Creep
  • Flexural strength
  • Gardner impact
  • Hardness (Brinell, Knoop, Rockwell, Shore, Vickers)
  • Shear strength
  • Stress rupture
  • Tensile strength
  • Poisson's Ratio.
