Mechanical properties

Mechanical propertiesSapa Technology performs research and development related to the mechanical properties of aluminium alloys. The following methods for sample preparation and characterization are available in our laboratory:

Heat treatment


Measurement of:

  • Tensile properties
  • Fatigue properties
  • Hardness
  • Formability (Erichsen, bending tests)
  • Foil burst strength
  • Electrical resistance and resistivity
  • Thermoelectric power


Calculation of:

  • Particle size distributions
  • Mn and Si in solid solution


In our mechanical workshops we can handle samples, prepare test specimens, and construct mechanical parts for our projects and technical areas.
