Testing Possibilities

Test Engineering

We have a decade of experience in the testing of elastomers and plastics, initially as an internal service provider for Phoenix AG, and for several years for customers outside the corporation as well. We now belong to Phoenix Compounding Technology GmbH, which is a legally independent entity. It is of course expected that test values are correct. We strive to provide you with such values quickly and cost efficiently.

Your advantages

  • Fast. Testing as a rule gets underway the day the order is received.
  • Good value for money. Our market observations have shown that we usually beat out the competition in terms of price by a large margin.
  • Competent. We test according to more than 5,000 national and international standards and specifications as well as in-house methods, many of which have already been implemented in test procedures. One press of a button and the processing of a complete specification can begin.

We have at our disposal a quality management system certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.
Legal note: The test laboratory is not an accredited centre of conformity evaluation in the context of § 1a AkkStelleG (accreditation body act).
