With the on-going developments in advanced materials throughout all industrial sectors, never has the testing and analysis of non-metallics been more important. New materials and applications are reaching the market every day and the landscape of manufacturing is rapidly changing because of it.
R-Tech’s non-metallic laboratories provide facilities for detailing the chemical, thermal and mechanical properties of non-metallic materials, components and products. Test programmes have been developed and implemented for plastics, rubbers, ceramics and adhesives for manufacturers and end users alike.
With many tests accredited by UKAS, our clients can be assured of the accuracy and quality of the testing being completed.
The rise of 3D printing is rapidly impacting manufacturing methods, particularly with the use of non-metallic materials. Testing is a vital component to validate this process and ensure the reliability of AM techniques. R-TECH can help meet your requirements in this area through our range of mechanical testing and characterisation services and are competent handling large and small scale components and products.
