We can expose specimens to simulated weather-, vibration- and/or general temperature conditions for extended periods of time, depending on the request.

Examples include:

-> Saltspray testing
-> Humidity testing
-> Accelerated Weather testing (UVA + UVB)
-> Stress Corrosion Cracking
-> Vibration testing
-> Heat treatment

We can perform PQR testing to qualify welders and weld procedures for engineering projects, and we are also able to identify the root cause of failures that are holding back production, if needed.

Examples include:

-> Tensile tests
-> Bend tests
-> Macrographs
-> Hardness Traverse
-> Charpy Impact tests
-> Fillet Break tests

We can determine the mechanical properties of numerous types of materials including metals, plastic, rubber, polymers as well as composite materials.

Examples include the following:

-> Tensile tests
-> Hardness tests (Brinell, Vickers, Rockwell)
-> PQR tests (tensile & bend)
-> Charpy/Izod Impact tests
-> Compression tests
-> Flexural tests

We can identify materials by analyzing the chemical composition of a sample, using one of several different possible methods, depending on the type of material involved (eg. metals, polymer, liquid).

Examples include the following:

-> Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES)
-> Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX)
-> X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)
-> Thermal Analysis
-> Water Analysis
-> And more

We are able to study test specimens under a microscope for various purposes (from the study of fracture surfaces, to structure analysis, to micro-measurements) depending on what is appropriate to the job request.

Examples include the following:

-> Microstructure
-> Grain Size Analysis
-> Coating Thickness
-> Micrographs
-> Shadowgraphs
-> Weld Profiles
