Material Testing & Thermal testing

We perform material testing and thermal testing on a wide variety of materials to check that they meet the stipulated requirements.

Predire tests materials from a number of different industries – everything from complete vehicles to textiles and clothing. In fact, there are all kinds of laws, regulations and directives setting out requirements that textile products have to fulfil before they can be sold on the market. One of several key factors that has to be checked is fire risk. Important requirements also apply in the field of chemicals, for example. As an independent test centre, we provide assistance and ensure that the product meets the prevailing requirements before it is launched onto the market – no matter what materials may be involved.

We perform tests on the following materials:

  • Plastics
  • Textiles
  • Coatings
  • Adhesives
  • Foams
  • Elastomers
  • Polymers
  • Composite materials
  • Metals
  • Sealants
  • Oils
  • Fibre materials
  • Leathers
  • Coatings and paints​
