Advanced materials characterisation

Helping industry to accelerate the adoption of new and advanced materials 

How materials perform is critical to the success of new and updated products. Industry needs to be sure that new materials will function in the way they expect and that any traditional materials used in new ways will not fail in service, even in extreme conditions.

We have the capabilities, equipment and experience to provide customers with the most accurate and authoritative materials measurements in the UK. Our world experts in complementary disciplines are available to help clarify requirements, interpret results and solve problems for customers. We can provide detailed, independent analysis to accelerate development, increase both the performance and quality of products and identify the root cause for any failures in materials, products or structures.

As the UK's National Measurement Institute, you can be sure that everything we deliver will be trustworthy and impartial. We give businesses the increased confidence they need when evaluating and predicting the performance of their materials through the full life cycle.
