One Eighty is SANAS and ISO accredited for materials testing and has the most widely scoped materials testing laboratory in Africa

 

What are Advanced Materials?
Advanced Materials are materials with engineered properties created through the development of specialised processing and synthesis technology. They include plastics, polymers, ceramics, glass, composites, adhesives, lubricants, refrigerants, building materials, paints & coatings, industrial chemicals, biomaterials, wood-based materials and electronic materials.
