Elements plastic pipes testing services help determine strength and ageing properties of piping materials and systems, serving resin manufacturers, pipe extruders, certification bodies and utility companies worldwide, helping water and gas supplies running smoothly.
We provide independent, reliable and reproducible test data for product classification and life time evaluation. Our capabilities include hydrostatic pressure testing, chlorine resistance testing, high flow circulation loop testing and crack propagation. Our plastic pipes testing facility in Sweden is one of very few independent laboratories globally in this field with a capacity of 5,000 test stations.
Standardized, accredited and fully independent testing
We provide performance and type testing according to standardized procedures for certification and approval purposes. Our testing services are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025.
From rental agreements to quick setup for small projects
As your Testing Partner, we offer rental agreements for long-term projects or serve as an extension of internal test capacity with quick test setup and online 24/7 project monitoring.
