Signature Testing

By carrying out Signature Test, one can repeatedly measure the spectra in accordance with custom procedures by comparing it with a reference sample. This technique is followed by various renowned automobile manufacturing companies. Signature test for polymers include 3 Tests; DSC, TGA & FTIR which are used to track the deviation in properties of a sample as compared to a reference sample.

IP Test for Automobile

Taillights, headlights, windows, Engine and its parts, pipes and valves, electronic circuits, etc.

Water Protection/ Rain Submersion

Extreme heat, cold or rain have adverse impacts on vehicles and may damage it. They penetrates heating, air inlets, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

Dust Settling Method

Ingres Protection test ensures that vehicle is ready to bear dust filled environment which tends to cause problems with moving parts and absorbs water vapour.
