Plastics instead of stone, wood and metal
Plastics are replacing other materials increasingly. At the same time, the requirements pertaining to materials continue to rise: Materials should become stronger, lighter and more cost effective. In addition, there should not be any restrictions with respect to safety, service life and environmental compatibility.
The Institute for Plastics (TÜV SÜD) offers all relevant engineering and certification services from a single source – worldwide:
- component testing,
e.g. on pipes and vessels
- fittings, structures and vehicle components
- acceptance and approval tests
- failure analysis
- production monitoring
- welding tests
- material tests
The Institute for Plastics is recognised as an approved body by BAM, DIN, DIBt,DVGW, DVS etc. and accredited by DAkkS Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH. Our laboratories are accredited in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17025 and registered as a 'Type A' inspection body in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17020.
