    Metallurgy refers to the process and technology of extracting metals or metal compounds from minerals and using various processing methods to make metals into metal materials with certain properties. Metallurgical analysis reveals the condition and composition of the material through macro, micro and SEM inspection. These analyses reveal the microstructure of the material, the processes performed during the manufacturing process, and whether the material meets the required specifications to ensure durability for the intended use. T,C&A Lab can provide a full range of analysis and testing services for metallurgical industry, such as microstructure and macrostructure inspections, corrosion analysis, microhardness testing, etc., and provide fast and reliable results and reports.

    Our testing standards include but are not limited to:

    ASTM E18 Standard Test Methods for Rockwell Hardness of Metallic Materials
    ASTM E384 Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials
    ASTM E10 Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials
    ASTM D2240 Standard Test Method for Rubber Property—Durometer Hardness
    ASTM E112 Standard Test Methods for Determining Average Grain Size
    ASTM E1382 Standard Test Methods for Determining Average Grain Size Using Semiautomatic and Automatic Image Analysis
