Assured Testing Services works closely with railroad industrial clients who have testing requirements unique to the rail transportation industry sector. The laboratory's testing focuses on the conditions of the exterior rail containers and tracks, including salt, humidity, sunlight, temperature, stress, impact, and others.

Assured has also helped to design and perform customized testing procedures for rail customers who have unique testing requirements.

The most commonly administered rail testing specifications include a mixture or cycle of salt fog, humidity, and UV Weathering. Assured Testing Services can help to recommend a suitable suite of tests for your project.
