NEMA LD3 Laminate Testing

We are capable of running the full series of tests prescribed in NEMA LD-3 (2005).

The lab has been running these tests since 1982. In addition to testing HPDL to the NEMA LD3 standard, we have attempted to accomodate requests to test other materials according to the NEMA LD3 test methods, however, results from testing other materials with these procedures may result in values that can be misleading or incompatable with the results from testing HPDL.

We assist the NEMA Technical Committee responsible for creating and revising the LD3 standards by evaluating test methods, and preforming reference and referee testing as an independent laboratory.
