Performance Testing

Material testing and designation is a routine test at RMRC in which parts and equipment are tested according to specific standard tests. However, in some cases for evaluation of characteristics of a single part or assembly, it is necessary to conduct comparison testing to specify performance.

Performance testing is the best way to give your product a competitive edge. We offer performance testing for virtually any type of products, testing to national, international, or industry standards, as well as retailer, or your own specifications.

Performance testing is a voluntary process wholly dictated by your goals and objectives. Benchmark and comparison testing will help you assess how your product performs against your competition. We will work with you to create a testing program specific to your needs and goals. It is essential that you set your product apart from competition.

Benchmark testing will help you to assess how your product performs against your competition in a number of areas including functionality, durability, quality, etc. This information will help you determine how your product will fare against products already on the market. Testing data will also help you make informed decisions on price points, product design and can help shape your performance claims. Our benchmark and comparison testing experts will work with you to determine which combination of testing components is right for you.

Thermal and mechanical cycling, environmental effect, evaluation of product features and overall performance, evaluation of product’s durability, construction and workmanship, independent verification of product performance claims, evaluation of product’s physical, chemical and mechanical characteristics are part of services offered to our customers.

Fire test of construction materials
Fire Test of Construction Materials
Implementation the latest fire test of construction materials according to the ASTM E84 standard to determine the surface burning characteristics is provided. Fire testing of construction materials, includes the burning behavior of materials used for example in walls and ceilings. This test is by positioning the sample at furnace roof so that the assessing surface is downwards and in direct contact with flame source. The purpose of this test is to determine the relative burning behavior of the material by observing the fire spread throughout the sample. Flame spread and smoke density (concentration), are two important parameters that are evaluated in this test. Checking the flame spread and smoke density of test sample is by comparing the results of two similar parameters derived from burning Oak wood and cement board. In order to respond to the needs of industries such as oil, gas, petrochemical and construction industries, the ability to perform this test on a sample of one meter length, five hundred and eight mm width and a thickness up to ten centimeters is provided at Razi Metallurgical Research Center’s performance laboratory.


 Installation of Thermal Humidity Chamber in RMRC' Performance laboratory
Installation of Thermal Humidity Chamber in RMRC' Performance laboratory
Thermal humidity chamber - type GT-7005-AT2, in order to simulate a wide range of environmental conditions at temperatures from -20 to 100 ° C and humidity range of 30 to 95% and on a diverse range of samples and products is being used. The capability to test samples with different temperature - humidity conditions such as constant temperature and humidity and also humidity and thermal cycles is provided. Another feature of these test devices are refrigeration to a temperature of - 20 ° C and embedded double valve in the wall. Therefore the functional efficiency of electrical equipment and components, such as parts used in automotive or other industries by applying current / voltage in different conditions of temperature and humidity, is possible. This research is based on various standards such as national test standards, ASTM, KES, EN, ISO and JIS and in the absence of standard, simulation based on real conditions of operation, can be performed.
