Materials technology

SP offers unique skills for those who work with mechanical properties and damage mechanisms in metallic and polymeric materials.

SP works with most types of materials to verify the function and capacity. One example is the many years of environmental impact. Today's high demands on strength and fatigue also places high demands on the verification of the product. We can assist you through the application of experimental methods, mechanical loads, accelerated ageing and microscopic examination and with investigative modelling of the behaviour of materials on various scales for simulation purposes.

Artificial weathering

How does your product react to UV, rain, high and low temperature, humidity and pollution?Read more...

Large-scale solar and climate simulation - environmental testing

It is increasingly important that all types of end products should be able to survive the extremes of climates and conditions anywhere in the world.Read more...

Corrosion testing

We assess the corrosion resistance ability of products.Read more...

Fracture mechanics

For welded constructions, or those having stress concentrations, it is sometimes important to verify the ability of the material to continue to carry its load in the presence of cracks or stress raisers.Read more...

Rubber testing

We can perform all common tests and analyses on rubber materials and products as well as customized tests for special areas.Read more...

Corrosion investigations

What is the origin of a damage? How can such a problem be avoided in the future? Who is responsible? A damage evaluation within materials technology can give answers to many questions.Read more...
