Failure Analysis Services
From the point of initiation to the root cause and mode of failure, we provide you with detailed information regarding the factors contributing to failure in your products and components. Using fractographic, metallographic, image analysis and SEM techniques, factors such as grain size, porosity and inclusion content are determined.  Our comprehensive failure analysis report typically contains positive material verification data obtained through additional chemical and mechanical testing.

We have experience examining the following types of failures: heat treatment, torsion, bending, fatigue, overload, wear, corrosion, forming, casting, plating and welding. Meeting ASTM, EN and ISO industry standards, we offer you timely results based on your needs.

Please Contact Us for more information regarding this and other material testing services that could be beneficial to your organization.
