Aerospace & Defense

Element's partners in manufacturing and contracting include Airbus, Bell Helicopters, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Rolls Royce, and many more. We support the aerospace and defense supply chain with materials and product testing.

Support at every stage

Element’s accredited and industry-approved materials testing laboratories provide key support services to manufacturers and suppliers. We work directly with aerospace OEMs and their suppliers from early R&D stages to post-flight testing and inspection. The diversity of our laboratories and our talented staff of scientists and engineers allows us to extend our support beyond typical aerospace programs—to assist with polymer and glass testing, furniture and upholstery evaluation, failure analysis, and more.

Meeting standards

As of November, 2010, seven Element laboratories hold Nadcap approvals to test parts and components. In addition, Element Materials Technology’s quality program meets the ISO/IEC Guide 17025 standards (equivalent to the relevant laboratory requirements of the ISO 9002 series of standards).
