Tests and Papers

Each comparison test is conducted independently in our test facility. We compare products that compete to satisfy a particular fastening or joining need. The tested products are always obtained independently, and are fully representative of what is available through standard distribution channels.

Test results are presented to emphasize practicality and applicability.

End the debate and speculation as to what are the best fastening and joining methods for your application.

If your fastening and joining challenges are not addressed by the comparison tests currently available, please contact us at 248-377-1147 or by email at info@archetypejoint.com. We’d like to discuss how Archetype Joint can perform tests specific to your needs.
