With our accredited climatic test, you can have your product tested on several parameters: Temperature (high and low), humidity (constant and cyclic), thermal shock, corrosion, as well as ice accumulation.

Your product will probably be used by your clients in many different climatic conditions. Perhaps in various countries and regions, and probably also during different seasons, or with different indoor thermal conditions. Therefore, it is advisable to test the product’s functionality for different climatic parameters, before you put it on the market. This allows you to ascertain whether the product is sufficiently robust and reliable under different climatic conditions.

With our accredited climatic test, you can have your product exposed to several parameters: Temperature (high and low), moisture (constant and cyclic), thermal shock, corrosion, as well as ice accumulation.
