Laboratory expertise of metallic materials

Are you looking to cooperate with a specialized laboratory to perform an expertise of your metallic materials ?

From the designing process to a product’s final use, your main challenges are to control the risks of your product degrading or of defects appearing and to ensure that your metallic materials comply with standards by doing the following :

  • Using the right metallic material
  • Evaluating the lifespan of metallic materials and predicting their behavior in various situations (simulations, accelerated aging tests…)
  • Guaranteeing the quality and safety of metallic materials
  • Reviewing legal standards regarding the metallic materials being used

The support and experience of an expert laboratory will allow you to precisely understand the causes of defects and to find remedial procedures to adapt your production process.

Our expertise services for metallic materials

FILAB laboratory provides analytical and expertise services to characterize any defects found on your materials, and then to find the causes of said defects (root cause analysis)

Thanks to a cutting-edge analytical fleet and extensive experience in dealing with defective metallic industrial materials, our experts here at FILAB will assist you with your production (rupture, corrosion, adhesion…) or wear problems by providing the following services :

  • Compliance testing of metallic materials by analyzing alloys
  • Metallographic examinations
  • Coating thickness measurements
  • Weld analysis
  • Corrosion resistance testing
  • Fractography
  • Surface characterization (rugosity, defects…)
  • Accelerated aging tests (corrosion, surface alteration…)

Our analytical fleet dedicated to metallurgical expertise :

  • ICP-AES and ICP-MS elemental analyses for inspecting metals (chemical composition analysis)
  • C, H, O, N, S elemental analyses
  • Optical Microscopy (structural analyses)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM-FEG-EDX)
  • Laser granulometry
  • X-ray Diffraction (XRD)
