Eurofins Expert Services provides comprehensive test selection for environmental exposure and artificial ageing tests for polymers, coatings and composites. These can be combined with mechanical testing and analysis.

Artificial Ageing and Environmental exposure

The effects of environmental parameters can be tested in the programmable climate chambers.

Studies and analysis

Eurofins Expert Services provides surface studies and analysis for identification of materials and evaluation of degradations after environmental exposure.​
