Elements highly qualified polymer and other advanced materials experts provide a comprehensive range of highly specialized and value-added material characterization, testing and analysis services to clients from across the world.
These services include:
Mechanical Testing Services for Polymers
Element offers a comprehensive range of mechanical testing services for elastomers, thermoplastics, composites and structural adhesives. The services offered include static, dynamic, fatigue, impact, creep and stress relaxation tests.
Compatibility testing from Element confirms whether a polymer/fluid combination will be satisfactory throughout operations or whether there are reasons for concern regarding long term deterioration or even short term use.
Element offers a range of analytical testing services for polymers such as glass transition temperature, melting point, crystallinity, specific heat, thermal conductivity, storage/loss modulii, and modulus changes
Permeation and Diffusion Testing
Element has a unique range of permeation capabilities where thermoplastics, elastomers and composites can be tested at high pressure and extreme temperatures to simulate deep well, arctic or LNG conditions.
High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) Exposure Testing Services
Element offers a wide range of testing for the qualification and compatibility of polymeric materials (elastomers, thermoplastics and composites) exposed to production fluids at high pressure and high temperatures (HPHT).
Thermal Insulation Coatings
Element coating expertise covers a wide range of applications and client needs, utilizing state–of–the–art materials engineering instrumentation and techniques for testing consulting and investigation.
Element has many years experience of assessing the failure of polymeric components recovered from service to establish the "root cause" of the failure to deliver potential solutions for our clients.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Services for Products, Systems & Components
Element offers advanced numerical analysis service using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques using industry standard software to predict the long term behavior of materials components and products when in service.
Engineering Consultancy Services
Element offers a comprehensive range of engineering consultancy services for polymeric materials to assess and qualify design methodologies proposed by equipment manufacturers, and to provide independent technical audit of design and analysis for our clients
