Onsite Testing Capabilities

Systems Protection (SP) is committed to providing our customers with outstanding technical support in all stages of the product application process. From material selection and product development through qualification and application specific testing, our world-class technology centers utilize state-of-the art test equipment to simulate real-life conditions and evaluate the full breadth of our product performance. Our testing capabilities are continually expanding to support our customer’s needs and provide evaluation for the following:

  • Acoustical: sound damping and absorption
  • Crash / Impact: custom crash scenario simulation, dynamic cut-through, and drop energy
  • EMI (Electromagnetic Interference): transfer impedance, shielding effectiveness and electrical resistance
  • Environmental: flammability, smoke density, toxicity, fluids exposure, durability, fogging, stone impingements, salt spray, and humidity
  • Material Analysis: melting point, specific heat, infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), emissivity, thermal conductivity.
  • Mechanical: abrasion resistance, tensile strength, elongation, tear strength, vibration resistance, peel strength, flexural strength
  • Thermal: Thermal effectiveness, and thermal containment / insulation

Our ability to quickly understand and simulate customer specific scenarios, utilize predictive modeling and conduct extensive testing enables us to deliver the optimal level of protection for each application. In the event that a relevant test method does not exist, our teams work to develop new test methods that accurately quantify product performance. This knowledge and experience results in SP team members routinely serving on industry technical committees and working with our customers to develop OEM specific product performance specifications.

Virtual Lab

As a value to our customers, SP has created and utilizes a virtual environment to allow design release engineers remote access to our labs to observe live testing and consult with testing staff. This no cost service allows our customers to better understand test methods and set up especially in the event that a relevant test method does not exist. Our teams work to develop new test methods that accurately quantify product performance and can demonstrate in real time for customer approval.

Product Design & Customization

Systems Protection takes pride in being a solution provider and partner to our customers by working to deliver the right solution for each application. We recognize that not every problem can be solved with a single product. By listening to our customers, we gain a better understanding of current industry challenges and are committed to developing new products to meet these demands in the ever-changing marketplace.

SP is continually evolving its product portfolio by drawing from a broad range of capabilities and expertise. Utilizing a variety of different materials, constructions, processes, and design features, we create new innovative products to meet needs for performance, survivability, and installation. Through collaboration with our customers, innovative ideas, and quick prototype fabrication, we deliver the optimal solution for each application.

Utilizing an extensive materials portfolio and the latest advancements in technology, SP strategically selects and blends unique fibers, coatings, adhesives, and other materials to create cost effective multifunctional designs capable of surviving in extreme conditions while providing varying levels of performance. SP strives to do its part in meeting environmental and eco-friendly initiatives including RoHS and REACH compliance by selecting appropriate materials.

With our textile foundation encompassing weaving, braiding, knitting and non-woven processes, SP prides itself in utilizing the best textile process for each application. Through variable construction attributes within each textile process, a balance of different metrics including technical performance, durability, install ability, expandability, and use ability can be met.

Adding Value:
SP looks to add value to our textiles and products through the incorporation of secondary processes, design features and customization in order to enhance performance and functionality. Lamination and coatings allow designers to add secondary materials to the textile to meet tougher requirements and provide multi-functionality. Custom cutting, notching and forming provide superior fit and aesthetics. The incorporation of adhesive strips, snaps, and custom attachments deliver quick and repeatable installation.
