Element’s electrical testing laboratories offer comprehensive testing and inspection services for components and materials subject to electrical currents. Our engaged experts work to make certain your products are safe and fit for purpose before being brought to market.
Electrical testing helps determine the effectiveness of materials and components when exposed to electrical fields. Careful measurement of these dielectric properties is critical to the performance and safety of modern electronics, satellite, and aerospace systems.
Our electrical testing capabilities
The services provided by our electrical testing laboratories include:
- Dielectric constant and dissipation factor (ASTM D150, ASTM D2520)
- Dielectric strength (ASTM D149)
- Volume and surface resistivity (ASTM D257)
- Dielectric Constant and dissipation factor of liquids (ASTM D924)
- Dielectric breakdown voltage of liquids (ASTM D877)
- Insulation resistance (IPC-TM 650)
- Arc resistance (ASTM D495)
- Low-level D.C. resistance measurement
We provide electrical testing for insulation materials, liquids, cables, wires, and more for a variety of industries. In addition to our electrical testing services, we provide full electronic product testing and certification services for electrical and electronic devices, including CE marking, NRTL and IECEE approval, and FCC certification.
