Metallurgical Testing

Metallurgical testing can be critical for evaluating the quality of metal employed in both industrial (aerospace, construction, medical devices, etc.) and consumer products and components. We use metallurgical testing to verify the conformance of metals to your requirements and also to industry standards. Additionally, our expert analysis can provide insight into the causes of failures from material defects, manufacturing processes, and service. The results can then be used to prevent future failures and negotiate disputes between suppliers, manufacturers, and end users.

We are here for you every step of the way. We are always happy to explain test results to you, and we will also offer supplemental resources if you need more information on what to do next. Industrial Inspection & Analysis Lab Services offers fast, affordable, accurate, and reliable testing for all aspects of projects.

Tensile Testing and Impact Testing

IIA uses Tensile Testing to characterize material properties or validate mechanical properties specifications (TYE). Toughness of material is determined through Impact Testing, and our lab professionals conduct the most commonly used and trusted impact testing methods, such as Charpy and IZOD. We have the capability of testing with a vast array of impact measurements, temperatures, and configurations.

Our experts provide:

  • Failure Analysis
  • Fracture Mode Analysis
  • Corrosion Evaluation
  • Image Analysis
  • Microstructure Analysis
  • Grain Size
  • Heat Treat Analysis
  • Coating / Plating Thickness Analysis
  • Case Thickness & Microhardness
  • Optical and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)/Electron Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS)
  • Surface Finish Analysis
  • Conductivity Testing

Industrial Inspection & Analysis Lab Services offers failure analysis testing, product and process problem solving, and material properties testing, and we use a variety of advanced examination and analysis methods.

There is a lot to consider when planning for manufacturing with metal, and it is important to choose a trusted partner, like IIA Lab Services for your projects. We deliver accurate tests and reliable results with fast turnaround and comprehensive reports.
