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
