Testing & Evaluation, Forensic Analysis and Expert Witness
Our laboratory is fully equipped to handle a wide variety of testing and analysis in accordance with the requirements of test specifying agencies such as ASTM, AASHTO, ACI, State DOTs or private clients.
This capability benefits specifiers, owners, contractors or manufacturers of polymer products and is unique in the construction industry because it combines know-how from the chemical, material science and civil engineering points of view.
We test polymer products for user application characteristics, resistance to chemicals, endurance under sunlight and weathering, abrasion or mechanical loads and behavior on substrates such as wood, steel and concrete. Similar evaluation is also applied in forensic and failure analysis. Misapplied polymer products are analyzed for their actual composition and likely application scenarios and anticipated in service performance established for the benefit of owners and their representatives as well as contractors.
