Metallurgical Testing and Metallography Services

Metallurgical testing reveals the condition and makeup of your materials with macro, micro, and SEM examinations. These analyses reveal microstructure, processes performed on the material during manufacture, and whether or not the materials meet the required specification(s) to ensure durability in the intended use. Metallurgical testing typically uses microscopy to provide vital details about the structure and properties of a metal or alloy sample. The process makes use of a metallography examination or analysis.

Our facilities offer a wide range of metallurgical testing, from routine microstructures and microhardness surveys to unique studies, including electrochemical corrosion simulations, mercurous nitrate testing, and more. Routine testing of microstructures, coatings evaluations, hardness surveys, and more are available. Most jobs can be turned around in three days or less, and we have special pricing for routine work. You get the same high-quality results and reports fast.

In addition, we offer aggressive machining evaluations, thermal spray coatings evaluations, corrosion evaluations, and comparative material analyses. For more information on IMR's metallurgical testing capabilities, contact us here, or click the button below to request a quote.

Many industries rely on thermal spray coatings to ensure the durability of parts that will be subjected to wear, high heat, corrosion, and other harsh in-service conditions.

Increased machining speeds can often affect the characteristics of feedstock material. High speeds generate more heat, which can have an impact on both the tool and the workpiece.

IMR's metallurgical team is equipped to identify corrodents and other environmental variables that are directly responsible for corrosion attacks.

Microhardness testing produces data identifying individual phases and orientation effects.

Metallography is the art and science of preparing test samples for an accurate evaluation of a material's microstructure.

Welder qualification and weld evaluation for OEM's and vendors. Qualification to the AWS, European Directive, and ASME standards.
