A class leading 17025 accredited laboratory

LoneStar Fasteners operate a fully controlled quality system ensuring full traceability of our products, from the initial supply source, into our manufacturing and distribution facility and right through to customer despatch.

This system includes a full range of destructive and non-destructive testing which is undertaken in-house in our state of the art ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. This ensures our products conform to the relevant standards and that our methods, equipment and quality controls meet the highest standards set by the demanding needs of the energy markets.

 

The main scope of the initial accreditation primarily concerns the important tests surrounding but not limited to:

  • Ambient Temperatures (BS EN ISO 6892-1/ ASTM E8/E8M /ASTM A370)
  • Elevated Temperature Tensile (BS EN ISO 6892-2 / ASTM E21)
  • Impact (BS EN ISO 148-1 /ASTM A370 /ASTM E23)
  • Stress Rupture (ASTM E139/ASTM E292)
