Quality testing

Did you know that Solico has its very own, fully equipped, test lab which is specialised in the testing of FRP composites? We do. A wide variety of tests can be performed when it comes to determining the properties or lay-up of FRP materials and meeting class requirements. Full assurance for every design.

Quality testing

Thanks to our lab’s ability for quality testing and assurance, it’s possible to check the condition of composite materials. We will check if they meet the given requirements and measure the lifespan.

Composites are known for their excellent ageing behaviour. Nevertheless, we are frequently asked to verify the performance of a structure, after many years of service.

An alternative question we frequently receive is to assure that products are built to the quality standards required.

We can support with such queries, through the following:

  • Samples are taken of which we burn off the resin. This way, we can determine the exact build-up and workmanship of a composite structure.
  • Test samples are taken to conduct destructive testing, such as tensile, compression and shear. This to verify mechanical properties.
  • Larger shells can be verified through more complicated methods, such as Laser Shearography. With such methods, the continuity of laminates are verified.
