World-class material engineering requires extensive
analytical resources. Shawmut supports all its materials engineering
projects with a combination of internal and external resources.
Our internal capabilities include full-service physical testing--from
simple physical testing, to chemical resistance, environmental
cycling, and accelerated aging. Our internal testing capabilities
include a wide range of application specific tests for the medical,
protective clothing and automotive industries. Shawmut uses its
extensive internal testing capability to support development activities,
product certification, PPAP and production control. Our full scale testing
lab in Port Huron, MI (cert. 2228.01) and our testing lab in Clinton, TN
(cert. 2228.02) are A2LA accredited.
Some of our most challenging developments require
the support of highly specialized testing capabilities. For these
applications, we supplement our internal testing capabilities
with a program of university partnerships that provide us access
to some of the most advanced materials testing labs in the country.
