Element has over 25 years of experience in delivering world-class materials testing expertise in polymeric materials including elastomers, thermoplastics, composites and structural adhesive related testing services to the Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Transportation, Medical, Energy and Consumer Product sectors.
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:
High Pressure, High Temperature (HP/HT) Exposure Testing
Element offers a wide range of testing for the qualification and compatibility of polymeric materials at high pressures and high temperatures that are used as seals, gaskets, pipelines and pipe liners.
Our compatibility testing services evaluate whether a fluid-polymer solution can sustain operation functionality, or if there are potential issues that could result in system failures.
Permeation and Diffusion Testing
With a unique range of permeating capabilities for polymers, thermoplastics, elastomers and composites, we can simulate the high pressure and extreme temperatures found in deep wells, or the conditions in an automotive applications, utilities industry or chemical processing equipment.
Thermal Insulation Coatings
Our industry-leading coating expertise covers a wide range of applications and client needs. Using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, we provide consulting, investigation and testing of thermal insulation coatings.
Mechanical Testing Services for Polymers
Element offers comprehensive mechanical testing services for polymers, elastomers, composites and thermoplastics, including fatigue, impact, creep, tensile, compression, bending and shear.
Element provides a range of analytical testing services for polymers, such as glass transition temperature, melting point, crystallinity, specific heat, thremal conductivity, weight loss, and dimensional and modulus changes.
Element has many years experience of assessing the failure of polymer materials and components, establishing the root cause of failure and delivering potential solutions to 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.
From technical auditing and third-party analysis to test design and implementation, we provide a robust suite of materials engineering services for polymer materials, components and systems.
