In today’s market, customers expect more from their products. The strength and durability of product is of primary importance. Physical testing is carried out in different ways, depending on the product group.
Tableware should not be susceptible to chipping on its edges or fragile under light impact.
Tiles and bricks must be rigorously tested to prove that they are not going to fail under flexural load, compression or high impact. Sudden changes in temperature (thermal shock) may cause failure or surface cracking – all of which are regularly tested for.
