Laboratory

We can provide laboratory testing services to meet your needs.

Laboratorium

Our laboratory is equipped with the analyses needed to ensure that our products comply with the demands of industry standards and specific customer demands for special applications. Contact us if you need to include analyses beyond those required in the standards. A list of our available analyses is provided below.

Tensile testing

  • Standards: EN ISO 6892-1, ASTM A370
  • 100 kN tensile test machine incl. strain measurement equipment
  • Hot tensile test acc. to EN ISO 6892-2 up to 300 °C

The tensile test shows the strength of the material by pulling. It also shows the resilience of the material.

Impact testing

  • Standards: EN ISO 6892-1, ASTM A370
  • 100 kN tensile test machine incl. strain measurement equipment
  • Hot tensile test acc. to EN ISO 6892-2 up to 300 °C

The tensile test shows the strength of the material by pulling. It also shows the resilience of the material.

Microscopy

  • Metallographic microscope with up to 500 times magnification
  • Classification of microstructure acc. to ASTM E562
  • Grain size determination
  • General microstructure determination
  • Digital picture of the structure

The microstructure says much about if the material has been treated at the right temperatures to maintain the correct properties. The grain size is important for strength; the smaller grains the better.

Hardness testing

Hardness acc. to Brinell EN ISO 6506.

Corrosion testing

  • Intergranular corrosion test acc. to EN ISO 3651-2 method A-C and ASTM A262 practice E
  • Pitting corrosion test acc. to ASTM G48 Method A, ASTM A923 Method C

Corrosion tests are a way to rapidly simulate the effects 15-20 years of exposure to harsh environments in the laboratory.
