Material Property Assessment Laboratory (MPAL)

The Material Property Assessment Laboratory (MPAL) develops leading solutions for diverse fields to optimize the performance of materials in many applications.

There’s a common saying “use the right tools for the job.” Do you ever hear use the right materials? Whenever we’re developing new products or performing failure analysis we need to understand the suitability of a chosen material and assess how it behaves under various conditions.

MPAL specializes in assessing these properties and behaviours by working very closely with industry and academia to select application-specific standard solutions to assessing materials. We also develop brand-new testing methods where established standards fall short of our partner’s needs.
