U L has launched an advanced laboratory for safety and performance testing of composite materials like polymer blends, laminates reinforced with nanoparticles, carbon and glass fibres in Bengaluru. Replete with the latest and best in class equipment and technology, the composite material testing laboratory will offer end-to-end service from laminate preparation, specimen machining and preparation to static tests as per ISO standards.
UL¦s strategic capacity building expansion is envisioned to support the fast growing composite material market in India in sectors such as renewable energy, smart cities, aerospace and automotives. Lightweight and imbued with high strength and impact resistance, composite materials are manufactured by combining two or more unique substances, chosen for their superior performance, in manner that each component retains its original nature in the blend.
Mette W Pedersen, VP and GM, Performance Material, UL added, (UL's legacy as an renowned safety leader has propelled us to address not only traditional risks, but also advance safety science to help our stakeholders meet the challenges posed by emerging technologies.
