What is Material Testing?
Material testing is used to determine the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of materials and product components. Material testing is also used to help predict and improve product durability, field performance, and safety.
Materials testing can be classified into four main groups of materials:
Why is Material Testing important?
Material testing offers many benefits and can give a wealth of information about the expected field performance of materials, prototypes or production samples. The information collected from the test results can help ensure the best decisions are made for your product. It can be useful to engineers, designers, quality control, product managers, and other people who help at different stages to design and commercialize a product such as:
- Selecting the best materials and treatments
- Evaluating the design of a product
- Meeting the standards of the industry
- Validating a production process
- Ensuring product safety and performance
- Minimizing risks
- Improving sustainability
