Testing

IN HOUSE TESTING

Within their new 12,700 square foot, state-of-the-art, climate-controlled laboratory, Gentex utilizes their broad range of testing capabilities for characterizing the optical and mechanical properties of materials, finished components, and end-items. Failure mode and effects analysis can be supported and has been conducted in the past to examine minute defects that can occur both in anti-scratch hard coat (high power microscopy) and in vacuum deposited thin films (laser interferometer).

Broad Range of Testing Capabilities

Gentex routinely performs a wide range of tests for developmental/production activities.
