About ASTM

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) is a standards organization responsible for publishing a variety of technical standards for a range of products. Each of these standards may be used by companies, voluntarily to test their products. These products include iron, steel and other metals, construction materials, petroleum products, lubricants, paints and coatings, plastics rubber and more.

We Provide ASTM Testing Services

We pride ourselves in our support and incorporation of ASTM testing standards. We have accumulated years of experience in providing environmental testing to ASTM standards for packaging and shipping, shock and vibration testing, accelerated aging, corrosion testing and temperature and humidity testing.

Our ASTM test labs, located in Cincinnati, OH and Sterling Heights, MI, can provide detailed reporting and are able to provide quotes for many ASTM testing standards.

Detailed below are several of the most commonly requested ASTM testing standards. If you do not see the specific standard you are looking for; please contact us as this list is not comprehensive.

We also offer MIL-STD, DO-160, ISTA testing, and more.

The following are a few ASTM standards with which we have testing experience. We can also customize materials testing solutions to meet your needs.
