Materials Testing: Choosing the right material for your application
Understanding materials properties and how they affect product performance.
A case study on materials testing
Materials testing provides valuable insight into the material characteristics such as hardness, flexibility, strength, and chemical composition, which provides a better understanding of the behavior of a material when subjected to operating conditions.
The data obtained from this testing can be used to improve product performance, correct vulnerabilities, and investigate failure issues. A profile of the material is also a valuable tool to support product development and innovation.

- Quantitative elemental analysis
- Tensile properties testing
- Charpy impact strength testing
- Microindentation hardness testing
- Microstructural examination
