Verification testing

During various stages of product innovation, it is necessary to have the validity of your product or material specifications determined by an independent party. Normec QS provides this verification of product properties in its own workshop and laboratory. We are happy to assist you in completing your (product) development process.

Innovative materials

The lifespan of applied plastics is subject to environmental factors, among others. Chemical, physical and mechanical degradation processes can limit a design life. Among other things, premature failure can be identified through laboratory testing.

Innovative welding

During the construction of piping systems, the quality of the welded joints is critical. By testing the joints in accordance with the applicable standards, the quality is guaranteed.
