Ceramic Tile Adhesive Testing; 4Ward Testing gains Notified Body status  - for CE marking under the CPR

4ward Testing is pleased to announce a complete range of testing, providing comprehensive coverage of the hEN 12004:2007 standards for ceramic adhesives involved in fixing ceramic tiles to walls and floors.

With over 40 years testing experience across a broad range of construction and manufacturing marketplaces, 4ward Testing is uniquely positioned to be your testing partner. As a UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory (No. 0307) and a Notified Body (No. 2538) we can offer a full range of testing for conformity, quality control, performance and legislative CE Marking. To ensure that 4ward Testing has the most up- to-date understanding of the business critical issues related to the new harmonised standards, we have partnered with BASA (British Adhesives and Sealants Association). This forum provides 4ward Testing the opportunity to share knowledge with others ensuring we can assist your business with accurate and informative feedback throughout the testing processes.

Tile adhesive products are either, cementitious, dispersion or reaction resin adhesives, tested principally for bond strength using tensile pull or shear testing, with or without the effects of water immersion, temperature and freeze-thaw cycling. Other testing that may be carried out includes, open time, slip, wetting capability, deformability and chemical resistance. 4ward Testing provides extensive in-house testing environments that have been continually maintained, tested and enhanced to the highest levels standing alongside industry standard names such as Q-Lab and Instron. This laboratory environment, technical expertise, combined with our customer communication focus throughout our testing projects, has provided our clients with the ideal testing model for over 4 decades.
