Ceramic tile testing

Whether you’re a designer, manufacturer, supplier or builder, our ceramic tile testing services provide reliable data and relevant insights for the benefit of your product or project.

Work with us from the selection of the ceramic tile, right through to use of the tile at the project level and beyond. We perform ceramic tile tests for manufacturers and projects in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, around Australia and internationally. Samples can be sent to our NATA-accredited lab here in Adelaide.

Comprehensive ceramic tile testing and evaluation provides data to determine the suitability of the tile for proposed uses. Test programs can be compiled from a wide range of tests conforming to Australian standard procedures.
