Two fasteners may look alike, but behave very differently. While one bolt holds it predicted load without fail, the other may shear off prematurely at low temperatures. 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 testing services are designed to evaluate every aspect of your fastener’s performance, from tensile strength to rotational capacity. Our experts have years of experience working with the specific challenges of fastener testing, and are knowledgeable about the latest regulations and requirements for fasteners.
