  • Materials Testing

    Material testing is used to measure the characteristics and behavior of such substances as metals, composits, or plastics under various conditions ...

    The data thus obtained can be used in specifying the suitability of materials for various applications. FRMS is capable of collecting accurate data through various types of material testing such as but not limited to the following:

     

     

    Chemical Analysis

    • Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES)(Six Bases - Fe, Cu, Al, Co, Ti, Ni)
    • Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS)
    • LECO Carbon Analysis
