Although aerospace and aviation technology allows aircraft to avoid a great many storms and other dangers, wildlife impacts and hail still cause millions of dollars in plane crashes and aircraft property damage—not to mention the danger to human life. In other industries, hail damages roofs, skylights, automobiles and other vehicles, and crops and livestock.
For safety and quality reasons, a hail impact testing program is an important part of your product plan. Element's product testing laboratories provide hail impact testing, using air cannons to accommodate simulated and actual hail impact, from 0.5 inch to 2.75 inches in diameter and velocities up to Mach 0.9, in testing programs for its clients.
