Performance and testing are a key part of our research.

We have various state-of-the-art facilities to support testing for stronger, optimal and more durable materials performance. For example, we test stronger, lighter or more corrosion-resistant materials and predict their performance over their lifetime. These improved materials are applied in applications like aerospace, automotive, electronics, healthcare and energy storage.
