Aerospace and Aviation Materials Testing

The aerospace and aviation industry is working to align all the benefits of aerial technology with fuel efficiency while reaching a bigger audience with low-cost, high-performance options.

Many materials in the aerospace field come with similar requirements: lighter, stronger, and more durable.  PMIC’s Coefficient of Thermal Expansion testing provides high-precision results to prove the often narrow-tolerance designs that keep aircraft in flight across variable temperature ranges.  Mechanical testing services are also available to prove the mechanical strength of the ever-lighter materials being introduced to the industry.  Aviation and aerospace applications introduce a continual change in moisture content to the exoskeleton and exposed components, which PMIC can quantify the effects of with Coefficient of Moisture Expansion testing.

PMIC frequently tests the following materials (and more) within this industry:

  • Aluminum, steel, and titanium alloys
  • Ceramic matrix composites
  • Honeycomb panels and facesheets
  • Carbon laminates and carbon sandwich composites
  • Aerogels for aircraft de-icing and cryogenic substitutes
  • Piezoelectric actuators for cryogenic applications and rotor blades
  • Ceramics
  • Polymers and plastics
  • Carbon fiber composites, carbon-reinforced plastic (CREP)
  • Graphene graphite-epoxies
  • Fiberglass
  • Carbon nanotubes
  • Leather and fabrics for comfort
  • Wires and electrical insulation materials
  • Glass for windows and console screens
