Environmental Conditioning

Environmental testing is a critical component to ballistics and ballistics resistance testing and certification. HP White has environmental conditioning facilities to maintain consistency and accuracy of testing projects from conditioning through ballistic performance.

HP White’s environmental facilities simulate extreme temperatures (minus 75 degrees C to plus 150 degrees C), humidity (10% to 98%), salt fog, altitude, vibration, and more.

HP White provides manufacturers with one-stop environmental conditioning and ballistics resistance testing required by multiple standards and regulations, including National Institute of Justice (NIJ), MIL STDs, UL 752, STANAG, military hard and soft body armor standards, and a host of other domestic and foreign protocols that require environmental conditioning. Manufacturers and suppliers can validate product designs for research and development, certification, and acceptance testing.
