METLAB can offer your business the following services:

  • Materials Selection: What should I use for this part or this job?
  • Failure analysis: Why did this break?
  • Chemical analysis: What is this metal?
  • Hardness testing: What condition is this material in? How hard is it?
  • Microstructural examination: What is the structure of this metal and how does it affect its performance?
  • Micro-measurement: Used to measure for example the thickness of a plating, or component
  • Mechanical Testing: How strong is this material? What are its mechanical properties? eg Tensile strength, yield strength, elongation
  • Case Depths: Used to determine how deep an effective case is and the total case depth on any nitrided or carburised surface (called case hardening)
  • Coat weight tests: Typically used on galvanised or plated samples to determine the coating mass per unit area, eg grams per square meter.
  • Electrical Conductivity: %IACS
