No matter what your product needs to withstand
Elite helps ensure ruggedness and compliance for your test item through rigorous environmental testing. Your product (and its enclosure) needs to go through a lot in order to pass the rigorous requirements necessary to get to market—being exposed to salt fog and dust, contaminated by various fluids, bombarded by chunks of gravel, sprayed or immersed in water, pressurized and even blown up.
Elite has the tools and know-how to help you throughout this trying process. Let us deal with the mess and help you get the results you need faster with the efficiency of a company that runs these tests all the time. Let Elite help you and your product withstand these trials and succeed. See below for more about our specific exposure equipment and the standards they test for:
