Fracture facies analysis laboratory

You want to perform a fracture surface analysis on a metal part?

The fracture surface is the appearance of the surface created by the fracture of a part. Each fracture has a specific pattern that allows us to identify the cause and origin of the fracture: fractography is the art of analyzing the fracture surface of broken parts.

This fractographic expertise will enable us to locate the onset of the fracture, to identify its extension and to highlight any material defects or external pollution that may be at its origin. The FILAB laboratory can help you understand and solve your fracture problems.
