Analysis of metallic alloys for the aeronautical industry

Coming from the aeronautical industry, you wish to analyze your metal alloys

What is an alloy?

First, an alloy is a metallic compound of varying purity containing a principal metal and one or more other elements (metallic or not).

Furthermore, alloys are homogeneous and solid compounds whose properties depend greatly on their composition. Thus, alloys have specific properties and well-defined areas of use.

For example, an aluminum-based alloy will be particularly used in the aeronautical field because of its lightness and its high resistance to corrosion.

Aerospace industry, why analyze your metal alloys?

The analysis of metallic alloys may be necessary in various contexts: 

  • As part of the development of a new product (choice of material)
  • As part of a material control
  • Following a failure problem (breakage, corrosion, surface defect…) 

In addition, it is important to ensure that the alloy used is suitable for the field of application, with the support of a specialized laboratory.
