Ambient & High Temperature Mechanical Testing

Ambient & High Temperature Mechanical Testing for Aircraft & Engine OEMs

Our expertise in ambient and high temperature mechanical testing enables you to understand how your materials and components perform in real-life situations.

Lucideon's ambient and high temperature mechanical testing capabilities can be applied to industry or custom standards to enable material behaviour to be assessed.  Safety is a critical factor within the aerospace industry which is why our testing simulates complex real-life loading scenarios.  Our years of expertise, partnered with state-of-the-art ISO 17025 and Nadcap-compliant facilities, enables us to test and characterise the properties of your materials under standard and product-specific loading configurations.
