About Our Laboratory

After multimillion-Euro investments done before 2015, Verila Lubricants Testing Laboratory is equipped with the most up-to-date measuring equipment and test rigs, with capabilities to test lubricating greases according to the requirements of the relevant international, European, regional and national standard test methods (ISO, EN, DIN, ASTM, BDS). 

Verila Lubricants Testing Laboratory also takes part in the ASTM Proficiency Testing Programs, an important supplementary source of validation of accuracy and highest level of compliance with the testing requirements and particularities.
