Metallurgical Testing Lab


This section about Metallurgical Testing Lab carries out testing  on crystalline structures and the morphology of metallic materials which facilitates an understanding of the physical and technological properties of these materials: fundamental both in research and innovation and product verification, control and certification.

Main activities of our Metallurgical Testing Lab:

METALLURGICAL TESTING: PREVENTION CONTROL

  • verification of:Metal alloys and their characteristics
  • Conformity of raw materials to current standards or contractual requirements

METALLURGICAL TESTING: DETERMINATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND DESIGNATION OF METAL ALLOYS:

  • Carbon steel
  • Low and medium alloy steel
  • Cast iron
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminium and aluminium alloys
  • Titanium and titanium alloys
  • Copper and copper alloys

METALLURGICAL TESTING: EXAMINATION OF PROTECTIVE LAYERS (HOT-DIP COATING), ANODIZING etc. – verification of:

  • Thickness (gravimetric, magnetic or optic)
  • Quality (uniformity, adherence etc. according to product standards)

HARDNESS METALLURGICAL TESTING

  • Rockwell hardness
  • Brinell hardness
  • Vickers hardness
  • Vickers microhardness
  • Shore A and D hardness
  • Barcol hardness
