The boundaries in the Oil & Gas sector continue to be pushed. And the materials most commonly and consistently used within these increasingly complex and challenging environments are being stretched to their utmost limit. As a result, the role of materials characterization and testing during the research, production and distribution phases are more critical than ever before.

Element has over 100 years' experience in materials characterization, evaluation, selection and application from a research, quality, performance and troubleshooting perspective. Our materials testing capabilities use tried and tested destructive and non-destructive testing methods and cover metal testing, composites testing, polymers testing and other advanced materials.

Our team of over 450 Oil & Gas specific, materials scientists, engineers and experts work with our clients to determine the best testing and certification program for them; guiding them through the entire testing process to produce high-quality data, test reports and certificates that can be relied on with absolute certainty to make decisions about which material to choose and how best to apply it.

The majority of our laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited and test to a variety of industry standards including ASTM and ISO as well as to a large number of Oil & Gas Majors' specific standards.

Ultimately, Element exists to help you make certain that the materials you choose are of appropriate quality, safe, industry compliant and fit for purpose for their intended use.
