INSTITUTE FOR TESTING AND CERTIFICATION

Plastics, Rubber

Polymer-based products are a tradition testing commodity for ITC. Thanks to our long-lasting specialization, the ITC examination experts are much-sought-for specialists in the field, are active in many standard-setting and legislative groups, participate in international projects, and consult both theoretical and technological issues with the production sector as well as the academic sphere. The technical equipment of the laboratories keeps pace with the most advanced technology so that the services offered are able to meet still new requirements of the clients as much as possible.
