Material Testing Facts

Material testing measures the characteristics and behaviour of substances such as metals ceramics, or plastics under a variety of conditions.

Material testing is often the last step in the manufacturing process.

Materials go through testing of ductility, hardness, impact, fracture toughness, and more.
