We perform tests of:

  • construction materials and products for thermal insulation

  • windows, doors, roof windows, skylights, roof hatches, gates, insulating glass panes

  • sandwich panels

  • bricks and masonry units, masonry mortars

  • metal and glass curtain walls

  • air supply devices.


In our laboratory in Katowice:

  • systems for pre-insulated pipes

  • products for thermal insulation in construction industry and products for thermal insulation of building equipment and industrial systems, including products made of: EPS, XPS, PUR/PIR, MW, FEF, CG, CS, PEF, PF;


we determine among other:

  • thermal conductivity and thermal resistance of materials and products for thermal insulation

  • thermal resistance and thermal conductivity coefficient (using the heat flow computer simulation method or at a test rig)

  • characteristics related to transportation of steam, absorption of steam at long-term diffusion by products to thermal insulation, e.g. roof slabs and terraces with reversed system of thermal insulation and waterproof layers and foundation walls

  • humidity, absorption and desorption of humidity, absorptiveness

  • freeze-thaw resistance

  • dimensional features, dimensional stability under specific constant or laboratory temperature and humidity conditions

  • behaviour of thermal insulation products during compression, bending, concentrated load, tensile strength perpendicular to face surfaces

  • products’ water resistance and air leakage and flow characteristics of air supply devices

  • emissivity of coatings on window panels’ surfaces.
