JEC Europe 2012 - Bureau Veritas Laboratories is presenting its new Composites Centre of Excellence located in France, near Bordeaux.

This centre offers a wide range of customized services applied to plastics and composite materials. Since 2011, two new activities have completed the lab’s recognized experience in the field of physics and chemical analysis.


The mechanical tests laboratory performs tests on carbon fibre, plastics and high-resistance composite (aeronautics, wind, energy,…) at temperatures ranging from -70°C to 250°C, following the NF EN ISO, ASTM and AITM standards and specific developments. With the support of Bureau Veritas Group, particularly in the NDT and design fields, the laboratory can handle complete specifications for customers worldwide.


The electrical tests laboratory is equipped to characterize the electrical properties of insulating, semi-conductive and conductive materials. Various tests can be performed at low and high voltage up to 100 kV, in wet and dry environments, including resistivity, electrical permittivity and breakdown voltage, etc.
