Materials Testing and Inspection Services

Our facilities and systems span the full range of methods for assessing the properties and structural integrity of materials and products; both to (International/National) standards and bespoke to customer requirements.

TWI offers both non-destructive and destructive testing services for metals, composites, polymers, resins and elastomers to determine properties, performance, strength, durability and resistance to factors such as corrosion and fatigue. Our high quality material inspection services help you to ensure that your materials are compliant to standards, safe and fit for purpose.

Our materials testing services include aggressive environment testing, corrosion tests, fatigue and mechanical testing, fatigue tests, hydrogen testing, residual stress measurement and welded polymer testing.

TWI’s materials testing laboratories include fracture, fatigue, corrosion, environmental testing and combinations of these test methods. This is supported by a range of material analysis and characterisation equipment, as well as non-destructive testing and condition monitoring capabilities.

With decades of experience testing materials, TWI has worked as a trusted partner with many of the biggest global names in industry, including brands operating in aerospace, transport, power, energy, construction, medical and marine applications.

In addition to our standard materials testing capabilities, we can also provide bespoke services for materials selection, application, certification and failure analysis.
