Environmental Laboratory

Accredited Laboratory according to ISO/IEC 17025

ENVIRONMENTAL AGING TESTS FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

We perform validation and reliability tests on components and subsystems in accordance with national and international standards and OEM specifications. In this laboratory, extreme weather conditions such as temperature, humidity, temperature variation, and solar radiation are simulated. We perform tests of saline fog corrosion, cyclic corrosion, condensation with constant humidity, and mixed gas corrosion (4 gases: Cl2, NO2, SO2, and H2S). We have a specific department to perform Protection Index Tests (IP’s).

  • ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING AND EXPERIENCES BASED ON CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS

    Our experience and knowledge allow us to develop new test methods in the laboratory, adapting effectively to changes in increasingly demanding regulations, and thus be able to respond to the requirements of new materials and components. We have the latest equipment to carry out complete validation of components that integrate the following generalizations: smart, ecological, sustainable, recyclable, and autonomous vehicles.
