Failure in service is not an option for the aerospace industry. That’s why Element provides a wide range of aerospace mechanical testing services to make certain your products and materials are safe, quality, compliant, and fit-for-purpose.
Aerospace mechanical testing/destructive testing
Mechanical testing, also known as destructive testing, ensures your materials and products meet the critical properties required for their end-use.
These test methods include, but are not limited to:
- tensile strength testing of metal, polymer, rubber and composites
- elongation testing
- compression testing
- shear testing
- fracture toughness testing
- abrasion and wear testing
- bend testing
- hardness testing (Brinell, Rockwell, Vickers, Micro-hardness)
- Charpy impact testing
- flexural strength testing

Our Aerospace Mechanical Testing Services
Element delivers industry-leading tensile testing services for a wide range of metallic, polymeric, and other advanced materials to the Aerospace and other industry sectors.
Element's laboratories help customers characterize the properties and behaviors of materials and components using varying loads, speeds, and environmental conditions to create predictive patterns of future behavior.
Fracture Toughness Testing
Element provides fracture toughness testing to determine material characteristics and longevity of metallic, nonmetallic, and advanced materials.
Measuring load over an extended period of time, creep testing programs use continuous load and elevated temperature to test for eventual material failure.
Element's laboratories use a variety of micro-indentation and macro-indentation testing methods to determine the hardness of a material to deformation.
Element's experts subject materials and products to dynamic impact, measuring cushioning, g-forces, and impact failure mechanisms.
