We offer you a variety of composite analysis service
in composite laminates and mouldings.
Cost-effectiveness, time-efficiency, and material
property concerns can all be addressed through a
combination of services:
• Perform both physical and mechanical tests of representative laminates or mouldings,
• Calculate component, lamina, or laminate level properties including fibre orientation analysis for composite mouldings
Once we have the material properties, we can use them to provide additional services such as:
• Determining the
appropriate material formulation based on your
required mechanical, chemical, electrical, and
• Perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for general and/or progressive failure analysis of a particular product or assembly.
