Element Materials Technology’s laboratory in Daleville, Ind., has significantly expanded the scope of its Nadcap accreditation. This follows a yearlong investment program in Element Daleville’s aluminum testing capabilities for the aerospace sector, which was led by the specific needs of a key client.
Achieving the best possible result of zero findings, Element Daleville now boasts Nadcap-accredited services such as stress corrosion cracking, R curve/Kapp panel fracture, exfoliation, and compressive yield testing. These add to the existing roster of certified services, including high-cycle fatigue testing, fracture toughness, as well as routine mechanical, metallurgical, chemical, and failure analysis.
Formerly operated by Sherry Laboratories, the Daleville laboratory joined Element as part of the company’s acquisition of Sherry in March 2013. It is one of 12 Element facilities in the U.S. holding Nadcap certificates.
