MATED S.r.l. has a UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory for characterization tests and studies of the durability of materials.
The engineers of the group, thanks to their many years of experience and the most modern equipment, are able to perform accurate analyzes on multiple types of materials while always maintaining complete customer satisfaction as a primary objective. The laboratory is aimed at all companies that consider the reliability and durability of materials to be strategic. It is no coincidence that the customers of MATED S.r.l. they are characterized by high-tech products that are often subjected to extreme conditions of use. MATED S.r.l. it is also an Italian laboratory recognized for carrying out tests and qualifications of coatings for:
- SNAM Rete Gas S.p.A.;
- ENI S.p.A.;
- SAIPEM S.p.A.;
- ANAS S.p.A.;
In 2018, the audit for the verification of compliance with the IACS Z17 (Rev.11 2015) and LR MQPS 19-1 requirements was successfully passed. The Laboratory is now certified with Lloyd's Register to perform the Water Ballast Tank Testing in accordance with IMO Resolution MSC.215 (82). Visit the quality section to check the certificates.
