    Who we are

    Created in 1993, the Analyses and Surface Technological Research Centre (CRT) provides industry with an operational platform for the study of materials. Our new facilities provide a framework for coupling materials characterization tools with environmental aging means.

    Our center’s main task is to support companies and laboratories in their projects involving research and innovation, appraisal, investigation and test services for the engineering of industrial materials.

    Our state-of-the-art means of investigation allow us to characterize of all types of materials. We analyze the surfaces, content, nature, composition and behavior of materials.

    The experience of our engineers and technicians allows us to carry out failure analyses such as metallurgical defect investigations, study corrosion phenomena, analyze defects or detect short circuits. We help our clients identify the nature and origin of defects in order to implement corrective actions.

    We help our clients define and chose materials suitable for their context.
    Our installed base of climatic chambers used to test the aging of new materials by implementing combined temperature, humidity, light, and salt spray tests.

    As an active interface between research, technology transfer and production, we support our customers in their research and innovation initiatives in order to meet the expectations of manufacturers in terms of quality, cost and lead-time.

    The laboratory is certified ISO 9001 and accredited by COFRAC. For our customers this ensures the relevance and reliability of our work in meeting their deadlines and our commitments.

    Companies of all sizes in various fields of activity trust our laboratory, which processes some 1,400 cases per year for more than 200 corporate clients.
