Non metallic materials can include composites, polymers, elastomers, leather, foam and more. Our engaged experts research, publish and work on the latest materials and techniques, and bring that knowledge to their clients in the form of customized test programs.
Non metallic materials can be evaluated for strength, flexibility, fatigue, and many of the other physical properties that metals are tested to. Understanding the limits of your material is vital in determining its integrity and useful lifespan.
Our Non Metallic Materials Testing Services
Our experts can pinpoint characteristics, help you select non metallic materials, test your samples to various industry standards or your own quality system, and work with you to turn the materials into better, stronger products.

We offer composite testing support in material selection and qualification, materials testing, fatigue testing, manufacturing process development, failure analysis, repair technology and training, while providing testing solutions designed to ensure that your materials are fit for purpose.
Polymer Testing Services
From material characterization and chemical analysis to mechanical properties and permeation testing, our polymer testing services help you understand the limits of your materials, and get the most value throughout their lifecycle.
Thermal Analysis (DSC, TMA, DMA, TGA)
A thermal analysis of polymers can help determine if a material is appropriate for its intended application or use. Thermal analysis methods measure mechanical changes under differing temperatures and loads, and can pinpoint when and at what temperature significant thermal events occur.
