Oxidative and thermal aging can have an adverse effect on the physical and chemical properties of a material when exposed to elevated temperatures. Understanding the deterioration of these properties is key in developing materials for specific applications or understanding the performance of new materials.
ARDL measures tensile, hardness, specific gravity, geometry and more before and after exposure to accelerated conditions in an air oven. With a large number of ovens and environmental chambers available at our facilities, ARDL can meet your heat aging requirements.
