Laboratory testing

Corcon BV has built a BELAC ISO 17025 European accredited laboratory. Here we perform tests and inspections on storage tanks and base materials in metal and plastic. We carry out the following lab tests under accreditation:
  • NBN EN 12285-2
    • 4.3.6.1. Wall thickness measurement
    • 5 Pressure test
  • NBN EN 13341 + A1
    1. Rotomoulding and blow moulding (tank testing)
    • B1. Capacity determination
    • B2. Visual Inspection
    • B3. Weight determination
    • B4. Wall thickness measurement
    • B5. Impact test
    • B6.2 Deformation test
    • B7. Resistance test
    • B8. Leak tightness test
    1. Rotomoulding (Material testing)
    • A2.1. Density
    • A2.2. MFI
    • A2.3. Tensile strength
    • A2.4. Oil resistance
    1. Blow moulding (Material testing)
    • A1.1. Density
    • A2.4. Oil resistance
