Correlating ageing in the laboratory

with reality

Thanks to a fruit full partnership with Midi-Pyrénées Observatory, we set up in 2005 an ageing platform on the roof-top of “Pic du Midi de Bigorre” Observatory at 2,877m above sea level. Located in the middle of the Pyrenees mountain range, It consist in a probe stand placed in a wide open air under harsh weathering.

Thus we are able to test your samples to extreme combined climatic conditions. We are also working on reproducing these stresses in our laboratory in order to make correlations models to be able to accelerate ageing and predict ageing behaviour.
