Proposed proficiency testing programs

Share this page with Linkedin:

 

The 2018 ILC (interlaboratory comparisons) program includes chemical analyses of metals and ferroalloys, physical tests (metallography, heat treatments, corrosion tests, determination of the roughness of a surface), tests on organic coatings (thickness, gloss, colorimetry, cross-cut, pull-off test, bending test, cupping test, impact test, aging tests), mechanical tests (Charpy impact test, Brinell, Rockwell and Vickers hardness tests, several types of tensile tests at ambient temperature or high temperature, bending test, tube flattening test, fatigue test), tests on bolts, tests on concrete steels and welded mesh shear test.
In addition to the assessment of the bias and repeatability, the participation to ILC organised by CompaLab provides an individual estimate the uncertainties of your test results.
At last, for participants who need their results very quickly, some samples which properties are known through the results of former ILC are also available.
