External Testing

Getting the results you need

With an ever changing market having the right paperwork and certification can be vital. Parkside Steel can offer external testing to help match your steel to your job spec.

External Testing

The majority of the products we carry come complete with Inspection Certificates to EN10204 type 2.1, 2.2 or 3.1 depending on the material or grade.

Sometimes though, customers encounter specific requirements for a job that will require extra levels of testing which we are happy to accommodate.  We use only UKAS accredited independent laboratories, so you can have absolute confidence in the results given.  Additionally for those customers who require it we can have the tests carried out through Rolls Royce approved laboratories also.

Some common examples of external tests include:

  • Tensile Strength
  • Room temperature / sub zero Charpy
  • Hardness (HB, HRC, HV)
  • Chemical Analysis
  • Independent verification (of part or all of a suppliers test certification)
