Material testing

The material analysis center of TEC Eurolab is an accredited laboratory UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and NADCAP for tests on materials. Accurate analysis are performed on many types of materials, from metals to polymers, offering the customer the technical support necessary for the correct interpretation of data, in order to identify the most appropriate operational solutions.

The center consists of a:

metallurgy department
chemical department
mechanical testing laboratory
internal workshop able to support the different departments in the realization of specimens and equipment necessary to carry out the tests.
