Based on these areas of expertise we have divided our services into three basic pillars.
The ‘Delft Solids Solutions Method’
Investigations are performed in close consultation with the client and - as far as possible - executed under conditions that closely match the targeted application of the product or actual problem.
This is feasible due to the broad array of instruments and specially-designed and built set ups and accessories as well as access to a modern workshop enabling the design of additional devices and apparatus.
Reporting of investigations is done by means of a full research report, including background information on the methodology and equipment used and is accompanied by a discussion of the results.
Quality of the experimental results is assured by working in accordance with ISO 17025 guidelines.
