Our laboratory services range from individually commissioned tests through to quality assurance baseline evaluations of mass produced products.
Often when conceiving a design there is the question of the most suitable material – a question made easy by CoLT’s modern test laboratory and extensive experience performing chemical, physical and mechanical tests.
Our modern equipment is capable of introducing a load up to 250 kN and can be configured in a variety of combinations, which can be customized to meet your individual needs. We also offer 3D deformation monitoring through the use of either optical deformation / displacement measurements or via the use of strain gauges.

In the field of analysis we offer services to evaluate chemical, thermal and physical properties, including fiber volume determination, determination of the glass transition temperature and determination of the porosity content of composite materials.
We offer an extensive range of physical tests, ranging from the testing of volatile substances (i.e. adhesives) to flammability and viscosity tests.
To get the best results from sample testing, you need professional preparation. We have extensive experience preparing test samples at CoLT and our experienced and well equipped team are able to perform various specialized processes and machine to fine dimensional tolerances.
CoLT distinguishes itself a number of acknowledged approvals*
*Caused by the long historical integration of the testing activities in the FACC Group CoLT guarantees to fulfil the requirements to the EN9100 and the testing part of the NADCAP Composite approval of FACC (AC 7122) in case of testing composite material and parts.
