Fasteners are vital parts of any component, and the only way to make sure they will last is to qualify them through testing. Element’s fastener, screw and bolt test methods are designed to evaluate every aspect of your fastener’s performance, from tensile strength to rotational capacity.
Two fasteners may look alike, but behave very differently. While one bolt holds its predicted load without fail, the other may shear off prematurely at low temperatures. Our experts help ensure that your fasteners and equipment are fit for purpose, no matter what the application.
