Testing of panels and plates

Ensayos de paneles y placas

Comprehensive quality control and performance assessment for characterisation tests of sandwich panels.

We offer our technological know-how and experience to manufacturers of different compositions of self-supporting and load-bearing metal-faced sandwich panels.

Services

  • Performance assessment
  • CE marking of panels
  • Characterisation and assessment of mechanical, acoustic, physical-chemical and fire performance properties through testing.
  • Technological services to improve performance
  • Design and development of testing methods for the assessment of innovative products

Tests and Standards

Mechanical tests on end product:

  • Dimensional and safety requirements
  • Stability, resistance to static load, impact and falls and fatigue tests.

Physical-chemical tests on raw materials:

  • Physical and mechanical properties: tensile strength, elasticity, impact, abrasion, bending, colour, brightness, etc.
  • Natural and artificial ageing: QUV, ATLAS Ci3000, climatic chambers, salt spray, thermal shock, moisture, etc.

Fire Performance Tests:

  • Reaction and resistance to fire, toxicity of smoke

Acoustic Tests:

  • Airborne sound insulation and sound absorption.

Aimed at manufacturers of:

  • Façade cladding
  • Roof coverings
  • Coatings
  • Refrigerator sandwich panels
  • Structural panels
  • Panels for reinforcements
