In the Defense sector where performance and reliability are critical, ensuring the quality of fuels and lubricants is a key element of any defense project or maintenance program.

Each year, around 12,000 unique military fuel and lubricant samples, each with its own special requirement and testing method, are tested and analysed by our teams, helping our customers to better understand the performance of fuels and lubricants.

We apply over 200 testing procedures using ASTM standards together with ISO, SS and IP methods. These include viscosity, density, flashpoint, oxidation stability, sulphur content and freezing point.
