Understanding how materials behave, degrade and relate to each other is a fundamental part of the research that takes place at TWI, and factors into much of the work we conduct for our Members.
Whether it’s identifying what caused a component to fail, developing hydrophobic coatings for anti-graffiti applications, or identifying the optimum material for a niche application, our materials scientists have the depth of knowledge to develop solutions to all manner of materials-related problems, without compromising on safety or quality.
We are engaged in research in the following areas:
Our materials scientists are constantly working on a diverse range of market-driven projects. Our primary focus is currently on the following:
TWI Members benefit from our unrivalled breadth of understanding and versatility of capability: with laboratories able to examine the microscopic, and specialised testing rigs able to investigate the massive, we can take on projects of any size.
Our world expert technology fellows, including Mike Gittos and Mike Troughton, contribute their considerable expertise to fulfilling the needs of our Members.
Some recent examples of pioneering work on behalf of our Members include the establishment or development of the following:
This quality of work would not be possible without state-of-the-art equipment, and TWI has invested heavily to ensure our experts have access to every tool they need to satisfy our Members’ requirements. Recent acquisitions include the following:
