Our services

Kiwa has a wide range of tests and analysis in the field of polymer. Check out what we have to offer below.

  • The quality of (city) heating networks depends to a significant extent on the quality of the connections in the pipelines. Leaks that allow water ingress, which often occur in sleeve connections, can lead to degradation of the insulation with all the resulting effects on thermal insulation performance

  • Cathodic protection (CB) is the ideal method for guarding pipelines and storage tanks against corrosion. However, the application of CB requires specialist knowledge, especially in extraordinary situations or when repairing breakdowns.
