Check the dimensional stability of polymers is a key step to ensure the long-term reliability of the supply of components.

The laboratory of the dimensional control, equipped with several measurement tools, operates in support of other laboratories, such as of aging ones, in order to evaluate and ensure the dimensional stability as a result of the stresses standard which the components are subjected (thermal cycles, simple and/or combined dry-wet).
