You have to participate in all the tests for which you are accredited or looking for accreditation by your sponsors.
Based on the material's properties and characteristics, check for the most suitable alternative material (e.g. another type of Aluminium or the same type of specimen geometry). Note that the intention of the PTP is to validate the test method of both your equipment / operator and not the material's performance itself.
Please contact the scheme sponsors and the PTP team to see what can be organised.
Please check that every step in the ordering process has been completed. Make sure the payment has been made.
Examples: Awaiting bank transfer means that your payment has not yet been confirmed.
Order in preparation means that your payment is confirmed and package is now in preparation.
You can ask for the tracking number of your package by email email@example.com.
You just have to log in to your member area and choose the relevant kit.
You can subcontract the machining as you are used to doing when performing tests for the sponsors.
The aim of the PTP is to check the mastery of a test but not the knowledge of a dedicated standard. This is why the technical definition may relate to a slightly different process from the referred standard. It is preferable to follow the technical instructions rather than the standard itself. Any deviation from instructions shall be indicated in the remarks section of the web results form.
The geometry in the technical definition is advised but not mandatory.
Ex : For Tensile test I can't measure 5D elongation.
All the results are requested, nevertheless if you are not able and not used to measuring a characteristic for your sponsors you do not need to provide it.
Please inform your sponsors. With their agreement you may order a new kit.
Please inform the sponsors about this issue and contact us to see about the possibility of an alternative solution (i.e: use material from a previous scheme).
Your results will be compared to the statistical population. You will receive a comparison report which is totally validated and accepted by the sponsors.
Please contact the PTP team :firstname.lastname@example.org
A five year schedule is downloadable on the scheme home page.
Please use the dedicated webtool accessible from your login area.
All the documents are downloadable from your personal area, if not available please contact us.
Please contact a member of the PTP team (email@example.com) and they can remove the delivery charges applied to your order. Please be aware that we will prepare the package, but that you will have to prepare the necessary shipping documents for us to stick to the package.
If the kit you wish to order is no longer available, please be informed that you have the possibility to perform the test on the same kit from a previous year. Please click on the tab "previous schemes" to see the list of the kits we still have in stock from a previous program.
