Materials Characterization

We can characterize material properties of each of the individual elements of the composite panel, helping you to understand both material and physical properties.

Physical properties can include strength and stability with regards to environmental conditions as well as acoustic and thermal properties.  This data gives you the ability to source generic materials with similar attributes, thereby reducing costs of material supply.  It also allows you to track the quality control of the materials used in the system construction, which is necessary when applying for and following factory quality accreditation schemes.

For new materials that are being developed our characterization services provide all the data needed for technical specifications.   This data can also be used to benchmark the new materials against other similar materials.
