What is ASTM Testing?
ASTM International, formally known as the American Society of Testing and Materials, seeks to promote public health and safety, increase consumer confidence and improve product quality by setting rigorous testing standards for over 150 global industries. ASTM standards set forth guidelines for material performance and define testing processes in order to provide uniform quality standards across industries and geographies.
Tektronix has decades of experience helping automotive, aerospace, military, retail and eCommerce companies gain regulatory compliance and ensure that their products and packaging meet these exacting ASTM standards. We are constantly upgrading our capabilities and adding new ASTM standards to our portfolio.
Tektronix tests to a wide variety of ASTM standards. This is a partial list of the most common ASTM standards to which we test. If you don't see the standard you are looking for, please contact us to inquire about our capabilities.
