Composites Manufacturing and Testing

Composite testing procedure underway at UDRI

Unlimited Capabilities in Composite Materials

UDRI's Composites Manufacturing and Testing researchers conduct R&D programs involving a wide range of adhesive, composite, plastic and core materials. We process and evaluate fiber-reinforced polymeric composite materials, adhesives and primers, cores, fabrics and textiles, and transparency and plastic materials.

Our highly versatile, ISO 9001:2015 registered Composites Manufacturing and Testing laboratory contains a wide array of equipment for processing and evaluating adhesives, primer, fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites, nanocomposites, and plastic materials used in military and commercial applications. In the laboratory, our researchers perform both routine and specialized evaluations and material characterizations on composites, adhesives, sandwich constructions and plastics.

We determine material properties following their exposure to various environmental conditions and temperatures. We are fully equipped to process and machine all types of fiber-reinforced composite and bonded adhesive joint test coupons.
