Classification Testing at i2 Analytical

Classification Testing at i2 Analytical

Classification testing includes a set of tests that can be undertaken individually or as a suite, in order to classify materials to their engineering properties. The results of which can then dictate how and where a material can be used, how it needs to be handled, how it may perform and what properties and behaviors it will show. Additionally, classification tests can offer some background to other testing data and with all the available information, whether a material will show compliance to a specification and perhaps more importantly, whether it is suitable for purpose.

Classification testing relates to all material classes and offers an important testing regime that is undertaken across any site and any material found or used on it.

As a standard suite of tests, i2 Analytical is set up and able undertake a huge number of these tests, reporting the found results as standard or fast tracked as requested, in order for clients to potentially save costs by making quick decisions on material use and limiting potential risk.

Our UKAS accredited laboratory can carry out testing to British and European Standards including the following:
