Environmental tests

Controlled environmental conditions tests are used to evaluate the behaviour of materials and their treatments under standardised and extreme climatic and corrosion conditions. CANAGROSAa has the capability to carry out cyclic, continuous and ageing controlled conditions tests, designing and optimising the applied parameters according to our client’s needs.

Accelerated corrosion in neutral and acetic salt spray chambers

Sandwich and stress corrosion

Temperature and humidity controlled climatic testing

Immersion in water and corrosive agents

Corrosion tests on "full scale" components

Tailor-made test plans

    On site testing

    Mobile sampling units and mobile laboratory to cover the widest range of ON SITE services in the industrial sector.

    The mobile laboratory is specially designed to operate at client facilities that require quality certification tests at a critical location and time, such as assembly line, flight line and/or after-sales.

    • Sampling on flight line and client facilities.

    • Aircraft Testing: Paints / Sealants / Hydraulic Oils, Fuels and Engine Lubricanting Oils.

    • Chemical conversion coating repairs, plating and repassivation.

    Incoming testing

    We provide an integral service of incoming testing of materials, optimising the client's resources and guaranteeing the process until the end of the useful life of the materials. We carry out TESTS of:

    • Paints

    • Sealants

    • Adhesives

    • Silicones

    • Lubricating oils, hydraulic oils and fuels

    • Metallic raw materials

    • Screws and standards

    • IR-FTIR

    Our certificates and accreditations

    The excellence and quality of the services provided by Canagrosa are guaranteed by the most demanding certifications and accreditations in the industrial sector, as well as by the specific approvals of the major aeronautical companies.
