Our Services

Materials Testing

Our staff of engineers and technicians test metals, plastics, ceramics and masonry materials. Both destructive and non-destructive tests are performed.


Destructive tests render the item being tested unacceptable for future use since the item is typically cut and sectioned. Non-destructive tests do not adversely affect the future utility of the part.
