The Real World - materials vs. the environment challenge
CTLGroup material-testing lab experts are routinely called on to evaluate materials in a wide range of environments, some of which are notoriously extreme or aggressive. Whether the arid and windy deserts of the Middle East or the humid and wet conditions of the Louisiana Bayou, our engineers and scientists help clients across the life-cycle of a project. It can be the up-front assessment of expected materials performance during the design stage, the review of performance during the build phase or the remediation proposal for an established structure. Our material-testing lab assessments cover the broad range of materials -- cement, concrete, metals, polymers and composites.
