EXPERT OPINION
WE DO NOT DOUBT THE RELIABILITY OF THEIR RESULTS

We cooperate with LOTRIČ laboratory in the field of testing and analysis of physical properties of samples. They occasionally perform mechanical testing such as tensile strength, microscopic testing of surfaces and breaks as well as environmental testing. Our products are certified by our partners,  confirming that they meet standard requirements and are suitable for the market. LOTRIČ metrology group are known for their amazing expertise in issuiing certificates, counselling, and issuing statements while also being very responsive and competitively priced. They ensure accreditation of their services by regular inter-laboratory comparison therefore we do not doubt their results and never feel the need to verify them.

SPEED AND PROXIMITY MATTER

We cooperate with LOTRIČ Metrology in the area of polymer testing, mostly doing analysis of raw materials. In some cases, the raw materials need to be checked to eliminate other causes in case of problems during production. The inconsistencies found in raw materials can be used as basis for claiming warranty. The proximity of the laboratory and their fast response time help to conduct the analysis in the shortest time possible. Immediately after testing we are informed of the results by electronically signed certificates, sent via e-mail.

Product failure analysis

Product failure analysis is an important discipline in the production industry and it is used in development of new products and improvement of existing products on the market. 

Complex problems on the production line are not easily solved. In such cases, often the companies do not have enough resources, knowledge and analytical methods to ensure a  comprehensive approach to the problem. LOTRIČ Metrology laboratories are your partner in problem solving, using chemical and mechanical methods in the field of polymer technology and metallurgical sciences.
