Hot hardness testing UMT tibolab2

High-Temperature Materials Testing

In many industrial applications improved efficiency and results can be achieved through fabrication or testing at higher temperatures. These applications, such as hot working of metals, catalytic processing to remove harmful greenhouse gases, or petrochemical processing all require materials that maintain their strength at high temperatures. Thus, it is useful to be able to test and compare materials under high-temperature service conditions.
