Climatics & Environmental Simulation
Element can simulate a wide variety of environmental conditions to recreate those encountered by products, parts, test components, or systems in field use. In addition, simulated conditions can be combined with operational requirements such as power/loading, hydraulic and pneumatic operation, and conditioned fuel, oil, or air.
Material Properties Testing
Element experts see your product from a different angle. We see its characteristics—hardness, flexibility, density, flammability, weatherability—as quantities that can be precisely measured. Once we’ve discovered those numbers, we can show you how well it will do its job and for how long; we can assess its future performance against heat, chemicals, moisture, friction, stress.
Hail Impact Testing
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.
