About metal testing lab, Spire Labs in Chesterfield About Spire Labs

Here at Spire Laboratories, we specialise in the testing, validation and certification of specific customer requirements associated with various aspects of the plating industry. Based in Chesterfield in the UK, Spire Labs was set up in order to fill the gap in response in lead time processes, certification and verification.

Since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which is considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry, there has been a considerable refocusing in the oil industry on to verification and traceability in subcontractor processes. Our metal testing services will ensure that your metal plated parts and components are safe, reliable, and fully certifiable to meet regulatory standards.

Accurate, Certifiable Testing

Our specialist metal testing laboratory facilities ensure that all our testing methods are closely controlled. In addition, our ongoing investment in instrumentation means that thickness, micro-hardness and phosphorous analysis measurements can be obtained using non destructive testing methods, ensuring that we maintain a high level of quality.

Spire Laboratories have a long standing commitment to ensuring that our services are of the highest quality, providing accurate and certifiable testing to our customers. Our dedication to the quality of our services ensures that customers are able to meet the standards required of their products. Our specialist team work hard to ensure that we offer our customers highly specialised technology and experienced, qualified staff.

Worldwide Metal Testing Service

Our services are available throughout Europe and the rest of the world including the UK, France, Holland, Brazil and Germany. Once we receive your samples, we can turn around most tests in just 72 hours, with the exception of salt spray and sulphur dioxide(Kesternich) testing, which by definition will take a number of days. Once the tests are complete, you will receive your results in the format you have requested, including photographic evidence should you require it.
