Plastics instead of stone, wood and metal

WHY ARE PLASTICS SO IMPORTANT?

Plastics are replacing other materials increasingly. At the same time, the requirements pertaining to materials continue to rise: Materials should become stronger, lighter and more cost effective. In addition, there should not be any restrictions with respect to safety, service life and environmental compatibility.

 

WHY CHOOSE TÜV SÜD?

The Institute for Plastics (TÜV SÜD) offers all relevant engineering and certification services from a single source – worldwide:

  • Component testing (e.g. on pipes, vessels, fittings, structures and vehicle components)
  • Acceptance and approval tests
  • Failure analysis
  • Production monitoring
  • Welding tests
  • Material tests
  • Accreditation
  • Certification of product specifications and/ or standards
  • Certification of materials for additive manufacturing
  • Certification of environmental aspects (e.g. microplastics, bio-degradability, recycling)

Furthermore, the Institute for Plastics is recognised as an approved body by BAM, DIN, DIBt, DVGW, DVS etc. and accredited by DAkkS Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH. Our laboratories are accredited in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17025.
