What influence do changing environmental conditions have on the properties and lifetime of products and materials?
Can products/materials withstand worldwide climatic conditions?
How quickly can the life cycle of a product be simulated?
Bertrandt is the solution partner for these and other questions in the field of environmental simulation. Testing methods such as climate change tests, constant climates or radiation tests are applied to examine the effect of global climatic conditions on the durability and lifetime of products and materials.
At six sites with a total of more than 180 climate chambers, Bertrandt is one of Europe’s largest providers of these services, with over 25 years of experience and know-how.
Every test is performed in accordance with all of the required and common test standards (e.g. DIN Standards) and in accordance with the testing requirements of many different industries. With our TISAX certification by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and accreditation according to ISO 17025:2019 by DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle – German Accreditation Body), we ensure that we always meet the highest international standards and guarantee the protection of sensitive and confidential data. This applies not only to processes, but also to products and prototypes.
For the products of tomorrow, we are already developing individual testing procedures together with our customers in order to meet the requirements of the modern world and to consider their impact on the environment.
- Due to globalisation, modern products are used in all markets of the world and in the most varied climate regions. Therefore, the requirements placed on these products are becoming increasingly complex with regard to their lifetime, functionality and performance.
- State-of-the-art powertrain concepts with high-voltage batteries or hydrogen tanks present special challenges in the field of validation. At the same time, there is a constant need to further develop the safety concepts for testing on site or in a climatic chamber in order to rule out any risk of injury. We are continuously developing new safety and evaluation concepts, also for our customers, to enable us to test any kind of product.
