Mechanical Characterization


CINN's facilities include an Instron universal testing machine equipped with a high temperature furnace and also a microhardness tester.

Services Offered


Measurement of material hardness by Vickers, Rockwell or Brinell tests

Bending Strength

Determination of flexural strength in structural components

Tensile and Compressive Strength

Determination of mechanical properties by tensile and compression tests in different kind of materials: metallic, ceramic,polymers, concrete and mortar


Determination of ability of a material with defects to resist applied forces without fracturing, by measuring the absorbed energy before breaking. The material's toughness is evaluated by impact tests.

Creep Resistance

Study of the mechanical performance of materials working at high temperatures
