We carry out any kind of environmental testing.
We test your development samples, prototypes and series products according to national and international standards and regulations. In our test laboratory, which is accredited according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025:2018, we test your products with climatic, mechanical-dynamic, corrosive, electrical and combined tests as well as with long-term tests.
We carry out environmental tests on materials, components, assemblies, prototypes and series equipment across all industries. We test for customers in all industrial sectors, including the electrical industry, energy industry, automotive industry, aerospace industry, railway technology, shipping, commercial vehicle industry, defence technology and medical technology.
We simulate extreme climatic conditions through exposure to temperature, humidity, heat, thermal shock and solar radiation. We carry out corrosion tests with salt spray and harmful gases as well as mechanical-dynamic tests with vibration and shock tests.
Flexibility is our strength. Based on our flexible accreditation, we develop individual test procedures that meet your specific requirements. We provide comprehensive advice on the development of complex and customised test and trial plans.
Cold tests down to -70 °C and heat tests up to 300 °C - we simulate a wide range of temperature conditions. This includes temperature changes up to 8 K/min as well as temperature shock tests in the variants air-air, air-water and splash water.
We test the effects of different climatic conditions on your product. RST examines the influence of high humidity or damp heat (constant and cyclic) and low pressure. We also offer climate change tests and condensation tests (constant and cyclical).
Sun simulation tests
We carry out sun simulation tests for you with metal halide lamps and xenon lamps. We also offer this test as a weathering test with superimposed sprinkling.
We carry out salt spray tests with neutral NaCl solution, acetic acid salt spray tests and salt spray with modified test solutions. RST carries out harmful gas tests with hydrogen sulphide and sulphur dioxide. Furthermore, we implement condensation water tests with sulphurous atmosphere as well as three- and four-gas tests.
Tests for chemical resistance
We offer temperature superimposed chemical resistance tests. Various application types are available for the chemical tests. We test for resistance to reference oils as well as reference fuels, among other things.
Vibration and shock tests
We offer a range of mechanical-dynamic tests, if required also temperature or climate superimposed. These include sinusoidal vibration tests and vibration tests with broadband random, resonance tests, resonance dwells, shock tests and drop tests. Furthermore, RST develops test frames using CAD and FEM simulation and manufactures test frames with in-house CNC material processing.
Protection class tests
We carry out IP protection class tests for many industries and applications according to IEC 60529 and ISO 20653. In our accredited test laboratory, we test your product for dust protection, contact protection, foreign body protection and water protection. RST also carries out impact and shock resistance tests (IK tests) in accordance with IEC 62262.
We carry out insulation tests such as withstand voltage tests, insulation measurements and partial discharge measurements. Our range of services also includes low-resistance measurements (4-wire measurement) and contact monitoring.
We can also support you in individual questions beyond the standard specifications. We develop the necessary hardware and software applications for monitoring and evaluating tests and set them up at your premises.
Exactly what you need.
RST is your competent partner for the test you need
Our optimised processes guarantee you fast and smooth processing of your order without long waiting times. Your request is our top priority. Our wealth of experience is based on countless test orders successfully completed for a wide range of customers. Our in-house test frame production as well as our in-house calibration laboratory guarantee the highest flexibility and cost efficiency.
With our professional support, we are always at your side - even in the event of unexpected changes to the planned test sequence, necessary rework and adjustments to the test specimen as well as under deadline. During the ongoing test, you can rely on optimal communication with our testers and engineers. We always keep you up to date and contact you quickly in case of problems or damage to the test object. You are welcome to accompany your tests personally on site or via video transmission.
RST is available to you as an accredited laboratory. Our competent and experienced test staff, equipped with comprehensive knowledge of standards and test requirements, are prepared for any challenge. Within the framework of our flexible accreditation, we develop individual test procedures for you outside of the standard specifications and are available to advise you the entire time. We deliver high-quality test reports in German and English.
