Lentus Composites have the experience and expertise to validate products and processes. This could be managing the full qualification process for an aerospace product or the validation of a manufacturing process.
Lentus Composites has the equipment to carry out tensile fatigue testing as well as ultimate failure testing. Pressure testing and burst testing is available for product testing.
Materials can be validated through Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) methods for extent of cure and glass transition temperature measurement. Volume fraction and void content can be determined and digital microscopy can be used to determine the quality of the composite such as fibre distribution and orientation. Ultrasonic techniques are used to identify cracks, de-lamination, defects or porosity in composite products.
