Materials Testing Laboratory

The Materials Testing Laboratory is equipped to determine compliance of a wide range of materials to a number of National and International Standards, including ASTM, British and ISO Standards.

The Laboratory also offers the only Impact Testing Facility in the Caribbean, capable of measuring breaking energy up to 358 Joules.

Product, welder and welding procedure qualifications testing are also performed.

If you require speedy results, we can meet your demands.

If there is a test you require not offered locally, we can arrange to have it
done at an accredited International Laboratory.
