    Automotive Materials Testing

    With the increasingly complete functions of various new models and people's continuous pursuit of ride experience and safety, automobile manufacturers are required to monitor the quality and safety of materials at the source. As the basis of vehicle production, the quality of automotive materials and parts is a prerequisite for the success of vehicle production. Because the process of automobile manufacturing is very complex, the failure of any part may lead to serious consequences, even cause casualties, and bring great harm to the society. If you are going to prove to customers the safety, high quality and durability of your products, while reducing the risk of product returns or recalls, then it is necessary to fully understand the physical, chemical, and environmental characteristics of your products.

    As the world's leading third-party testing organization, T,C&A Lab has built a global service organization for automotive parts testing to provide you with professional and fast one-stop service.
