Tests can be carried out over a wide temperature range to characterise the properties of materials. Data is generated for Quality Control (QC) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) design studies. 

​​​Mechanical testing can include tensile, compression, shear, flexure, fatigue, creep, stress relaxation and optical extensometry testing. For such testing Roxel have tensile test machines equipped with temperature conditioning chambers and a line-scan camera capability. This can be used to test explosive and non-explosive material. Other testing includes metallurgical analysis such as hardness and failure / corrosion analysis, fracture analysis and microscopy, bond testing, thermal analysis and Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA).​
