The center is accredited for compliance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 as a testing center for testing the mechanical properties and research of materials structure and mechanical engineering products (certificate № BY/112 02.1.0.1670 dated from 03.05.2010, the period of validity is up to 05.03.2020).

The center conducts the analysis of structure, phase and defining of mechanical and tribological properties of construction materials (including at high temperatures) and hardened layers for heat-and-power, chemical, mechanical engineering, building and other equipment.

The center is equipped with a complex of modern research instruments and testing machines to carry out research work in the field of studies of structure and tribo-mechanical properties of mechanical engineering materials; certification tests of materials and analysis of their destruction causes.
