Testing & Characterisation for the Aerospace and Defence Industries
With state-of-the-art laboratories and years of materials expertise, our testing and characterisation services form the basis of much of Lucideon's activities. We go beyond the standard testing protocols and push the boundaries of what's possible. And we don’t just provide data, we provide solutions too.
Our experts use their cross-industry experience to work alongside clients, to help them to understand the bigger picture with regard to their materials and products. We provide analysis, which in turn provides answers to the toughest of materials challenges; this is what differentiates us from other test houses.
Standardised testing procedures are extremely important in the aerospace and defence industries. Standards can also be used as a guideline for programs that differ slightly, or for a different application entirely. In these situations, you need experts that are knowledgeable not only in the test, but also the science to understand the limitations.
Lucideon has a comprehensive suite of testing capabilities and extensive materials expertise. Our state-of the-art analytical facilities provide quick turnaround and accurate data. We work across a wide range of materials, providing analysis and support for composites, ceramics, metals, and polymers.
