Materials Testing Services

Materials testing is an important aspect of product research and development. Many manufacturers are required to continuously improve products due to competitive markets and consumer demand.

Whether it’s steel, plastics, textiles, or any of the above, it is important to have data such as elasticity, breaking point, melting point, and even flammability. The data gathered from these material tests is crucial in product quality and many times even consumer safety. The materials testing lab at Cross has the capability to perform a range of materials tests.

Don’t see a particular testing service listed? Don’t worry! Cross is always working to expand capabilities to meet demand.
