The great experience of the Cortem Group is the result of years of research and development of new products keeping up with the new technologies and the needs of a very demanding market in terms of safety. This is strongly revealed in our Research&Development office, where new projects of more innovative, secure and reliable products take shape every day. Safety and reliability are well-rendered in the Research&Development laboratory where all products are tested severely.

Since 2009 Cortem Group has and internal R&D laboratory equipped with all the latest equipment to perform the main tests required for the certification of explosion-proof electrical products. The laboratory is used both to test new prototypes and validate a new project, and to periodically check the products in production as required by Ex Standard.

The tests that are carried out in the Laboratory Cortem Group are:

  • Tests in a climatic chamber: complete accelerated aging cycles (heat thermal resistance), wet heat and dry heat environment. Thermal resistance to cold. Maximum test temperature of + 180° C, minimum test temperature of -70° C.

  • Shockproof test according to product Standards.

  • IP tests: dust test chamber (IP6X), equipment for water testing IP x5 and X6. Tank IPX7 test.

  • Test for corrosion in salt spray. 

  • Restricted breathing test
  • Thermal shock test
  • Automatic equipment for hydrostatic testing of overpressure

  • Thermal tests with temperature detector with thermocouples
  • EMC Tests (Electromagnetic Compatibility)
  • Dielectric strength test
  • Test "op is": irradiance emitted by LED sources.

The Friuli Venezia Giulia in 2010 recognized the Cortem Group Research&Development Laboratory as highly qualified Structure in the field of analysis of materials with particular reference to Ex-protected equipment, after examining the organization, the provision of equipment, as well as the high specialty of the company.
