This latest accreditation for the aerospace laboratory covers high cycle fatigue testing, low cycle fatigue testing, chemistry, metallography and mechanical testing, including creep and stress rupture testing services.

Element Sheffield is equipped with the very latest technology including new high cycle and low cycle fatigue testing capabilities, an increased capacity in creep and stress rupture testing and expanded capacity in high temperature tensile testing. Further investments have also been made in the aerospace and medical device testing and chemistry lab facilities, which now feature increased capacity and larger scope.

In June 2017, Element Materials Technology acquired Exova Group Limited to create one, world-class global testing services partner. Element specialises in providing a comprehensive range of materials and product qualification testing, consulting, certification and calibration services to several industry sectors including aerospace.
