The Santa Fe Springs laboratory provides specialist metals testing, fatigue and high temperature fatigue testing, creep/stress rupture, metallurgical and chemistry testing. It supports aerospace primes and leading organizations in their global supply chain and is one of 14 Exova aerospace testing facilities worldwide.
