SP-High Modulus earns IANZ accreditation...

Industry News

It is the first and only laboratory of its kind in New Zealand to be accredited for mechanical testing of composite materials.


International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ), the national New Zealand authority for the accreditation of testing and calibration laboratories, promotes the development and maintenance of good practice in testing and inspection.
The SP-High Modulus laboratory was assessed to the ISO standard 17025:2005, and was found to be competent in the field of mechanical testing for applications including strength and stiffness testing of hull-sandwich laminates, ultimate bearing strength for wind blades and sailing-yacht masts, and stiffness of filament-wound industrial pipes. As part of the assessment, it was successfully demonstrated that the laboratory’s technical equipment met the required international testing standards and that all measurements are traceable to recognised standards.
