A new agreement between Element Materials Technology (Element) and GE Aviation provides Element customers with access to GE’s comprehensive product qualification testing (PQT) capabilities.

Building on a 50-year relationship between the two companies, Element expands its current capabilities, providing PQT customers with a broader range of testing in GE Aviation’s 40+ global testing facilities. GE Aviation’s unparalleled capabilities include testing at temperatures above 1400°F and pressures up to 1000 psia to simulate the extreme conditions that exist inside today’s advanced engines. Combining the capabilities of GE Aviation’s test services (here) with Element’s existing PQT capabilities gives customers access to one of the most comprehensive arrays of product qualification testing available globally.

Rick Sluiters, EVP for Aerospace at Element, said: “We have a proud history of supporting GE’s core businesses – aviation, power, renewable energy and healthcare. I am delighted that we have been able to further cement our relationship through this unique partnership. Combining Element’s access to customers with GE’s testing strength is a win-win for both companies, as well as for aerospace PQT customers across the world.”

Nate Roedig, general manager of Test Systems Engineering & Flight Test Operations for GE Aviation added: “We are excited to be working with Element to provide the same high quality testing capabilities and service to Element customers that we use every day to test GE Aviation’s engines, materials and components.”
