For material tests Oldham Seals Ltd, being a member of RAPRA, has access to a wide range of third party test facilities who can carry out independent tests for materials such as ageing, fluid resistance, smoke and toxicity generation.
Fire testing can be conducted on high pressure and low pressure assemblies.
