Industry Leaders in Non-Destructive Testing, Metallurgy & NDT Calibrations

Metallographic Testing

By preparing specimens through a process of grinding, mounting, polishing, and etching, our skilled metallurgists can examine material samples on a microscopic level. Using various methods, they can identify alloys and predict material properties. At American Testing Services, we offer the following metallographic services:

  • Metallographic Mounting and Polishing
  • Microstructure Evaluation
  • Inclusion / Cleanliness Rating (ASTM E45)
  • Effective and Total Case Depth
  • Decarburization Depth
  • Grain Size / Grain Flow
  • Plating and Coating Thickness, Identification and Adhesion
  • Alpha Case on Titanium Alloys
  • Detection of Eutectic Melting
  • Recast Layer Evaluation
  • Intergranular Oxidation
