Selected chemical analysis, testing of health safety, fire characteristics, ageing tests are carried out in collaboration with specialised laboratories of the ITC.
The laboratory also provides the results of non-accredited methods especially in the case of requirements for testing in accordance with special procedures. The technical capacity of the working site allows the variable use of equipment and thereby the creation of favourable conditions for meeting the client's needs .
