get the most from your tests
composite materials testing and consulting services
In AMTEC composites, we are experts in the analysis of the mechanical behaviour and fracture of composite materials and adhesives.
We provide integral testing services and added value in their definition and analysis, including:
Test and specimen design
Design a test specimen that is representative of actual service structural conditions. Select the most adequate test methods to suit your needs.
Manufacture using prepreg and autoclave, hot plates, resin infusion, RTM, etc. Machine complex shapes and prepare specimens for testing.
We take care of designing and manufacturing the test fixture needed for customized tests.
In our facilities in Girona, we perform mechanical tests based on virtually any existing standard or customized test methods. Static or fatigue loads, from cryogenic to elevated temperatures. We use advanced instrumentation techniques (Digital Image Correlation, crack growth tracking systems, etc.)
Data reduction methods
We select from the literature the most suitable data reduction methods for your tests, or develop new methods to calculate the properties you need.
Test conditions, parameters and any calculations done are exhaustively reported, along with tests raw data.
Generation of material cards
We generate material cards as inputs for your specific CAE software.
Analysis and implementation
We investigate any phenomena occurring during testing and provide advice on how to use advanced test results in your models and design strategies.
