About the Lab

Since 1996, we’ve evolved from a small group of scientists to the only in Russia vibro-acoustic testing laboratory accredited to conduct a wide range of tests of sound absorbing, vibration damping and sound insulating materials, items and products.

As an independent unit, the Lab formed in 2000 at the premises of the Standartplast company.

Now the Lab staff includes 6 highly skilled professionals armed with cutting-edge measuring equipment working at the Lab’s own experimental production site and offering a wide range of services.

Since 2008, the Lab has been maintaining its technical competence status via accreditation. Since 2017, all protocols issued by the Lab are internationally recognized.

Foundation of the Lab

1996 - 1997
A group of scientists united within the Standartplast company.

An aspiration to improve its inventions motivated the Standartplast company to create a special department responsible for testing auto-tuning materials. Highly skilled specialists of the new department started elaborating measurement techniques and testing the first prototypes.

1998 - 1999
Exchange of best practices and formation of basic infrastructure

We rented a small room at the premises of the Industrial Safety Protection Institute. Our specialists got the opportunity to exchange experience with other scientists and cooperate with the Industrial Acoustics Laboratory. Later on, we designed several measurement tools and purchased necessary testing equipment.

1999 - 2000
Foundation of an independent organization

We decided to evolve into an expert laboratory. For this purpose, we founded an independent institution which contained two groups of specialists in field and laboratory testing.

2000
Creation of a testing site

As we continued designing new solutions, we understood we needed our own testing site - and we created one. Here our specialists had the opportunity to simulate real situations occurring at the clients’ sites.

2005
The period of steady improvement

Soon we understood that the basic infrastructure and our experience were not the ample conditions for becoming a recognized expert authorized to issue convincing research results. And we decided to accredit our laboratory for it to have the official right to perform tests according to standard procedures

2008
The first accreditation

Our persistence paid off, and we got a certificate of the Federal Agency on Technical Regulation and Metrology acknowledging the technical competence of the Lab. We certified the conformance with the requirements of the Federal standard and the international standards ISO/IEC.

2010
Cooperation with large customers

The widely recognized status of the laboratory as a vibro-acoustic protection expert institution attracted the attention of large public and private customers. Companies working in the fields of machinery manufacturing, aircraft construction, carriage and ship building started contacting us for help. Besides, our specialists were involved in highly important governmental projects.

2011
Acoustic correction projects

Acoustic correction of rooms became the Lab experts' new area of work. They devised solutions for reverberation time management, bass traps, sound absorbing and diffusing panels.

2012
The second accreditation

We confirmed our technical competence and renewed the certificate. At the same time, a new Unified Federal Service for Accreditation started forming in Russia.

2015
Accreditation according to the new standards and acquisition of a perpetual certificate

Tightening of legislation led to shutting down of 36% of testing laboratories. But we successfully passed all the procedures connected with the transition of the Federal Service for Accreditation to the new level. We got the new perpetual certificate and were included into the certified entities register.

2017
New Frontiers

As the Federal Service for Accreditation had been internationally acknowledged, all results and protocols issued by our laboratory also got an international status. At present, we design the materials reducing the vibration level in integral units for machinery manufacturing companies, and develop innovative shockproof constructions.
