Kiwa supports manufacturers and suppliers in the mobility sector from the early stages of designing. For example, we realized a complex test set-up for complete LNG systems and components for a car parts manufacturer. Kiwa thus helps its partners in making the transport sector more sustainable.

Hydrogen Embrittlement Testing according to ISO 11114-4 Method A – Disc Method

Hydrogen will play an important role in the automotive sector as an alternative fuel for vehicles. Hydrogen cars produce no CO₂ emissions, only water vapor, have a long range and can be refueled quickly. Manufacturers of hydrogen tanks and components are currently setting up mass production. For this purpose metallic materials have to be tested to demonstrate safe use with hydrogen. Kiwa performs hydrogen embrittlement tests according to the ISO 11114-4’s disc method to demonstrate this hydrogen compatibility.
