A variety of materials are coated with enamels, paints, or metallic layers for many reasons like aesthetics, to improve surface hardness, or to prevent corrosion. …
Physical Analysis Product Testing
The microstructure analysis of materials examines how the material was made and can provide indicators on how that material will behave in service.
This metals testing technique can determine if an alloy has any impurities or unusual elemental presence.
Fractogoraphy analysis is used to determine the mode in which a material failed.
Corrosion usually leaves behind a corrosion pattern and product which can be analysed with Optical Microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy.
Failure Analysis Chemical Analysis
If a material fails in service, and embrittlement is suspected, then mechanical testing, chemical testing, and fractography can be performed to measure any loss of ductility.
The process of examining a failure and determining the root cause.
Failure Analysis Quality Control
We have the experience, equipment, and expertise to provide the contamination analysis solutions you require.
