Our laboratory specializes in testing composite materials and polymers (plastics, adhesives, paints, resins, etc.), and offers a complete range of services:
From the preparation of your test specimens (from your materials in the form of plates, samples or parts) to the characterization of your materials by means of mechanical tests, physico-chemical analyses, micrographic analyses, aging tests… right through to the submission of test reports and PVs.
Our teams can support you in your validation activities for production monitoring of serial parts (short cycle) and the development of your R&D work (material/product/manufacturing process characterization).
Etim carries out a wide range of mechanical tests on all types of polymers and composite materials at temperatures ranging from -185°C to +300°C.
Mechanical characterization tests
ETIM carries out thermal and/or physico-chemical characterization tests allowing the analysis of raw materials, materials and/or parts.
Etim carries out all the operations required to prepare your test specimens for testing: layout layout, machining, installation of stubs, installation of strain gages, screwing equipment.
Preparation of specimens
ETIM performs macro and micrographic analyzes to control material health defects on a section of the part and to confirm the layup sequences…
ETIM carries out paint and varnish characterizations on coated parts (metal, etc.).
Characterization of paint coatings, corrosion
Etim can help you carry out the aging and fluid resistance tests you need to characterize your materials and parts.
