Verify and examine the mechanical properties of various materials and welded assemblies through destructive testing at top modern facilities.

For whatever purpose your material may have, it is important to ensure that is in good shape and that it is suited for its purpose. This may prevent unexpected failures and reduce the likelihood of an abbreviated service life.

At our modern laboratory facilities in Kristiansand, we are able to make sure that you achieve an effective material economy. We hold several years of experience within destructive testing for a wide range of industries, including offshore, maritime, infrastructure, food processing and many more.

Through various types of testing, we secure that your chosen material is prepared and tested in accordance with appropriate material and application specification.

We provide:

  • Verification of material physical/mechanical properties
  • Material certification
  • Testing of welded assemblies in order to verify compliance between weld and base material
  • Verification of welding consumables
  • Failure and crack analysis

Modern testing facilities
