NATA Testing

Polyweld Tech Academy is a leading provider of welding training and certification programs. We understand the importance of quality assurance in the welding industry and are proud to offer NATA-accredited testing facilities for weld testing services. Our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped to handle a variety of testing needs, including tensile testing of butt welds and peel decohesion for electrofusion welds. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of using NATA-accredited testing facilities and how it can help ensure the quality of your welding projects.

What is NATA Accreditation?

NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) is the national accreditation body for Australia. It is responsible for providing independent assurance of technical competence through a range of laboratory accreditation services. NATA accreditation is recognized globally and is a mark of quality and reliability. It ensures that the testing facilities meet the highest standards of technical competence, impartiality, and reliability.

Benefits of Using NATA-Accredited Testing Facilities:

Quality Assurance

Quality assurance is crucial in the welding industry, as it ensures that the final product meets the required standards. By using NATA-accredited testing facilities, you can be confident that your welding projects are being tested by experts who have met the highest standards of technical competence. This will give you peace of mind and help you avoid costly mistakes.

Compliance with Industry Standards

NATA-accredited testing facilities are required to comply with strict industry standards. This means that the testing methods, equipment, and procedures used are up to date-and meet the latest industry requirements. By using NATA-accredited testing facilities, you can be sure that your welding projects are being tested using the most advanced and accurate methods.

Reliable Results

NATA-accredited testing facilities must undergo regular assessments to maintain their accreditation. This ensures that the results provided by these facilities are reliable and accurate.
