The tests are performed on diverse materials

  • Carbon fibre
  • Adhesives
  • Fibreglass
  • Paints
  • Tear-plies
  • Sealants
  • Polymers and plastics


The following are the main parameters and techniques

Mechanical Over-coatings Physical-chemical Others
Interlaminar shearing Determination of dry film thickness Mass, volatiles Indentation hardness
Fracture toughness Grating cut Resin, fibre Setting time
Resistance to shear Scratch Density Assembly time
Traction Folding Flow time Thermal stability
Peeling Liquid resistance Viscosity Flow test
Temperature compression (up to 350º C) Adhesion Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) Fibre contents. Volatiles and resin
  Cross linking Gelling  

The Analysis and Tests Laboratory is accredited by the Spanishl Entity of Accreditation, to make trials in compound materials, paints, varnishes, and pellets. Accreditation Nº 335/LE1276.


   The ATL is accredited by the Nadcap Management Council to make non metallic materials tests.
