Testing of materials/products

Testing of Materials/ Products become is an integral phase in almost all types of industries for ensuring its quality and safety. It is predominantly essential especially since if done anything erroneously, it can harm people. Hence, the need for proper material testing becomes indispensable to protect the people who will be using the manufactured product. In most of the productions, testing is taken place at the end of the manufacturing process. But, instead of testing the product as a whole, it is a good practice to test the individual parts that is making the product.
It can provide a wealthIt can provide a wealth of information about the tested materials, prototypes or product samples. The data collected during testing and the final test results can be very to engineers, designers, production managers and others.
Here are some of the reasons material testing is important:

  • * Meeting requirements of regulatory agencies
  • * Selecting appropriate materials and treatments for an application
  • * Evaluating product design or improvement specifications
  • * Verifying a production process:
    Many products are used in critical applications where a failure could result in extensive damage or injury. In cases like these, governments and regulatory bodies set compliance requirements that must be met by manufacturers. Companies must adhere to these standards, which gnerally specify test procedures to prove compliance.


    The quality of a material going into a manufactured product is as important as the reliability of the production process. Materials testing helps us to understand and quantify whether a specific material or treatment is suitable for a particular application.

    Not only is testing commonly relied on for material selection and choosing a reliable supplier, but it is also frequently used as a verification process to be sure that material received from a new supplier is what was ordered.
    Testing is an essential part of both design and manufacturing processes, not only when safety is a concern, but also for any company committed to selling reliable products and minimizing damage and costs if problems do surface. Testing is often performed early on during product development to evaluate a planned production process. It can also be just as relevant to provide validation for final products on an ongoing basis.
    Materials testing also plays a large role in failure analysis investigations to help identify defective products, inadequate materials and, ultimately, the cause of a failure.
    The materials testing services should procured from ISO/ IEC 17025 accredited laboratories that provide a test report accepted everywhere tested according to the applicable specifications/standards, other test criteria..
