These accreditations cover a large scope, from mechanical testing (tensile, compression, flexure, ILSS, G1C, …) to thermal analysis (DSC, DMA, FVC, …).

With 25 accreditations, ETIM, composites testing lab, becomes the first french independant laboratory regarding the number of NADCAP NMMT (Non-Metallic Material Testing) accreditations.

Moreover, ETIM was also awarded with the Merit approval, corresponding to zero non-compliance in the last three audits.

Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a program launched by the main “primes” of the aerospace international industry in order to contribute to a continuous improvement of the performances of the different suppliers of the sector. The Nadcap accreditations granted to testing labs are prestigious and requested by customers, as they certify a perfect mastery of the tests.

ETIM, located at Technocampus Composites in Bouguenais (France), is a joint venture created by Europe Technologies Group (300 p, turnover 58 M€) and CETIM (700 p, turnover 115 M€). Adding the reactivity of a SME to the expertize of a National Technical Institute, and offering integrated services (from plates manufacturing to testing, including coupons machining and preparation), it settles as the european reference laboratory for composites testing with fast turnarounds.
