Our Modern Facilities
Include a state-of-the-art electron beam lab equipped with multiple Scanning Electron Microscopes. These microscopes provide EDX, EBSD and WDS for composition determination. High magnification digital imaging allows us to identify fracture modes, corrosion, defects, and surface layers. Our FTIR units can quickly identify organic contaminants, microscopic particles, and unknown materials. Metallurgical’s optical lab provides metallurgical inspection of microstructures, thermal spray inspection, and corrosion analysis. Our complete mechanical test facilities provide tensile, hardness, bend, fatigue, torsion, fracture toughness, and impact testing.
Our typical projects include
- Failure analysis of metal and polymer components
- Surface analysis of metal layers and films
- Mechanical testing of all materials
- Field inspection of large metal systems
- Paint and coating testing
- Environmental exposure testing
We perform ASTM standard and custom tests for a variety of materials. With our primary lab located in the Dallas area, we provide services to all industries worldwide. Our flexible services allow us to offer mail order testing with rapid turnaround. We encourage you to apply our teamwork to your most difficult challenges and enjoy the benefits of our specialized services.
