Building products are among the oldest material applications in the world – and they have never stopped changing. From their beginnings as wood, stone and steel to today’s high-tech composites and alloys, building products have experienced unprecedented growth and development.
Building product testing requires independent technical support to prepare products and processes for the rapidly evolving, heavily regulated construction market. Element experts provide that support with precise, accredited testing and inspection.
Research & development
Element supports early research and development stages with material selection, reverse engineering, nondestructive testing, and other services.
From mechanical testing to environmental simulation—and from tensile testing to packaging evaluation, Element scientists and engineers smooth the bumps on the road to market. Our failure analysts can turn oversights into opportunities, reducing future costs and surprises.
Your Element project team comes equipped with advanced instrumentation and advanced knowledge of industry codes and has the accreditations to conduct product testing for ICC-ES, Miami-Dade and other agencies.
