About Element Anaheim
Element Anaheim has developed over the last forty years to become one of the world’s foremost laboratories for the testing of non-metallic materials.
The laboratory offers a single location testing service across a range of materials including advanced polymer composites, adhesives, thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and ceramic matrix composites (CMC).
Located in Orange County, California, our laboratory is in the heart of the Greater Los Angeles Aerospace Cluster, traditionally the hub of the US aerospace industry. The laboratory serves a broad and geographically diverse group of clients that includes prime contractors / OEMs; tier 1 and tier 2 subcontractors; and raw material suppliers. Element Anaheim is considered a center of excellence for many types of destructive testing, particularly in the emerging field of CMC materials.
The laboratory’s standard services include static mechanical, dynamic (fatigue and creep) and physical / chemical testing. In addition, Anaheim has a fully equipped machine shop for specimen preparation; environmental chambers for moisture conditioning; and facilities to lay-up polymer composite materials including laminate cure capabilities, utilizing autoclave, press and oven curing methods.
