Nadcap and A2LA Accredited

a2la accreditedNadcap accreditationLaboratory Testing Inc. provides a full-range of aerospace testing at our one-stop facility, including PRI Nadcap accredited materials testing and nondestructive testing services. Materials testing is also A2LA accredited, as are metrology services. LTI’s quality program meets the ISO/IEC Guide 17025 standards.

Aerospace Testing Services

Metal testing is our specialty, but the testing and analysis services available for polymers continue to expand. Other materials such as powdered metals, ferroalloys, ores, composites and ceramics are also analyzed in our Chemistry Lab. You’ll receive a Certified Material Test Report that include all pertinent details relating to the services performed.

Our Customers Say:

“I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for the time and effort that LTI has put into the testing involved with our orders. Your staff has been invaluable over the last several years.  Additionally, the fact that you are now able to perform Fracture Toughness testing in house has already proven priceless in both the turnaround time and in getting my questions answered. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with LTI since 1986 and I have come to think of LTI as an extension of Dubose. I look forward to our continued relationship.”
