Can your product withstand the exposure of the intended environment ? Environmental testing helps to simulates the different climatic condition & mechanical stress a product can subject to undergo during their lifetime. Also it help to simulate the lifecycle environments that are encountered by the product. The reliability & longevity of the product can be checked through environmental testing.

Environmental chambers are designed to create artificial environment under closed chamber. Nemko India has a state-of-the-art laboratory to test your products for mechanical stress & environmental conditions along with lifecycle tests.
