Determine the long-term impact of exposure to weather conditions on your product in standard laboratory conditions. When developing new products, LOTRIČ Metrology certificate  provides proof of  quality and longevity of your product.

Check the impact of aging on products by:

  • Exposure to a representative level of the influence factor for an extended time period
  • Exposing the product to a higher level of influence factor than expected in order to accelerate the aging process
  • Exposing the product to an increasing impact of influence factor in order to determine the point of failure

We perform the tests according to the standard procedures and numerous other procedures listed bellow. The procedures  are tailored to your requirements. Methods marked with * are *accredited testing methods and are listed in ISO 17025 scope of accreditation.

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
