Element experts see your product from a different angle. We see its characteristics—hardness, flexibility, density, flammability, weatherability—as quantities that can be precisely measured. 

Once we’ve discovered those numbers, we can show you how well it will do its job and for how long; we can assess its future performance against heat, chemicals, moisture, friction, stress. Most importantly, we can help you make your product live up to your expectations. 

Element tests almost any material imaginable. Below you’ll find a sampling of the tests we perform on materials such as plastics, rubbers, glass, paints, adhesives, wood products, and insulating materials.
