What we have
  • Your materials, coupons, components or full structures to be tested, inspected and/or evaluated?
  • Your material certified
  • Certification test on your component or full scale test article
  • A one-stop-shop to get your structure tested and certified?

The capability to offer you inspection, testing, characterization and failure analysis. We can do that on material level, coupon level, component level or full-scale level. We can perform standardized tests, material qualification, certification tests, or tests made fit for your purposes. The tests can be of mechanical and/or environmental nature. The test articles can be made of ceramic, composite and/or metal, and can be small up to full scale. We can assist you in machining your test articles and help you to set up a test plan which satisfies the requirements.

If you want, we can help you to use the results to improve your product, using NLR’s design, manufacturing and maintenance skills and operational knowledge.
