Element has one of the most comprehensive ranges of materials testing services available in the TIC sector that covers materials selection, application and performance testing as well as failure analysis testing services.

We apply a combination of both destructive testing and non-destructive testing methods to metals, composites, polymers, elastomers and resins to determine their potential properties, performance, strength, durability and resistance to corrosion and to ultimately help make certain that they are safe, compliant and fit for purpose in their end application.

We are a world leader in the provision of high volume routine mechanical testing services such as tensile testing, impact testing or hardness testing, for both metals and polymeric materials, as well as highly specialized mechanical testing such as fatigue testing, fracture mechanics, crack metal testing, crack propagation testing, creep testing, corrosion testing and chemical analysis services using OES, XRF, ICP, EDS, MS and other analytical techniques.

As part of our materials testing service range, Element provides advanced solutions in metals technology, offering critical support in testing and consultation aligned to all stages of metals processing and product development. Our laboratories deliver comprehensive, inter-disciplinary services in the development, processing, characterization and testing of all materials.

Element is a trusted testing partner to many of the world's most recognized and iconic brands within the global Aerospace, Transportation, Oil and Gas, Fire and Building Product, Infrastructure and Environmental sectors.

Our materials testing laboratories are staffed by over 6,600 Engaged Experts, who solve our customers’ most complex technical and commercial challenges in the fields of materials selection; materials application; production; certification and failure analysis.
