Accredited Test Laboratory for O-Ring Seals

Failure and damage analysis and material testing

We are your reliable partners for the testing of O-rings and seals. In our O-ring test laboratory we are testing elastomeric materials for density and tear resistance. Of course, our wide spectrum of services includes also accurate failure analyses, identification tests and electrical testing. We offer to our customers testing and checking of flat seals, rubber seals and sealing rings.

As for incoming tests, which we perform, increasingly more companies rely on our technical and testing competence. In our test laboratory, we are offering also hardness testing and dimensional testing of O-rings and seals. With the use of modern test methods and instrumentation we are always in the position to analyze and to narrow down a large number of cases of failure accurately. Due to our long existence and many years of experience, we share our knowledge regularly in seminars on subjects such as O-rings, seals, elastomeric materials and failure analysis.
