Metallurgical Corrosion Evaluation Services

METALLURGICAL ANALYSIS AND MICROSTRUCTURAL INSPECTION OF CORROSIVE EFFECTS

Metallurgical Corrosion Evaluation Services are performed by IMR’s experienced metallurgists, starting with an initial visual inspection to determine what further equipment-aided examinations are necessary. If needed, an optical or scanning electron microscope is utilized to reveal the extent of corrosion and its nature..

Metal components fail as a result of the environmental conditions to which they are exposed to as well as the mechanical stresses that they experience. Often a combination of both environmental conditions and stress will cause failure. Metal components need to be designed to withstand the environment and stresses that they will be subjected to.

Manufacturers and their suppliers require verification of materials to be used in production of components exposed to corrosive environments. IMR's corrosion testing lab provides a complete array of metallurgical techniques to accurately detect material properties and characteristics.
