Harsh Environmental Testing Services

Harsh Environmental Testing ServicesOur Harsh Environmental Testing Services determines various physical properties about a material and how the material will withstand when exposed to the rigors of certain conditions. These environmental tests can be used on raw materials, such as plastics, polymers and metals, semi-finished products and finished products.

If you’re looking for a harsh environmental testing service, ITA Labs UK Laboratory has the experience and expertise to help you interpret the results, whilst providing a fast turnaround at very competitive rates.

Using our suite of environmental chambers, the sample material is exposed to certain elements in order to show fitness for purpose in harsh and corrosive environments. The most typical environmental test regimes include:

  • temperature cycling
  • thermal shock
  • salt spray and fog
  • high humidity and vibration.

Customised testing regimes can be developed to proof test products in a variety of industrial applications.

The majority of tests are conducted under ISO, EN, BS, ASTM and DIN methodologies to ensure they adhere to standards and specifications. Some tests are more general in nature, however some tests conducted are specific to the sample materials and the applications of the material.

ITA Labs confidently use a range of techniques to assess samples after the harsh environmental testing has included, including:

  • Optical Microscopy
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Solder Joint Strength Testing
  • Cross-sectioning
  • X-Ray Inspection
  • Solderability Testing
