Accelerated Aging



Cellular materials are very dependent on the environment inherent to the application. Durability is the most sensitive aspect when the application requires structural stability.
FrontWave’s experience in dealing with the characterisation and use of cellular materials (such as wood and cork) is determinant for determining the best testing methodologies allowing evaluating its behaviour when submitted to hostile environmental conditions.
Through more than 10 years, skills have been acquired to develop new methods allowing accelerating the environmental effects, used to evaluate the most relevant properties for any given application, such as: mechanical strength, elasticity / stiffness, hardness, thermal insulation, thermal and water expansion.
