Full-Service, Accredited Lab
LTI’s destructive metal testing services are A2LA accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 and comply with ISO 9001 and ISO 13485. Both destructive and nondestructive testing are accredited by PRI Nadcap. All metal test results, accreditations, specifications and more are documented in our detailed Certified Test Reports.
Lab Testing performs all metals testing at our Hatfield, PA facility (near Philadelphia) including mechanical testing, metallurgical testing, chemical analysis, nondestructive testing and corrosion testing. As your metal testing lab, call on us to give you information about the following:
- Mechanical properties
- Microscopic product features
- Flaws and defects
- Material composition
- Corrosion susceptibility
The metals testing and material analysis departments work with the latest computerized equipment to ensure reliable results. Some of our latest technology are a Thermo iCAP Q ICP-MS system, Hitachi SEM/EDS (EDAX), Leco RC612 analyzer for moisture determination and Struers DuraScan hardness testing system.
The chemistry laboratory is able to perform qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis, even at trace levels, and analyze a variety of materials in addition to metals including powdered metals, ores, ferroalloys, composites, plastics and ceramics. Our metal test services can be performed on a wide-range of specimens and products such as tubing, pipe, bar, plates, castings, fasteners and other machined parts in all sizes, shapes and weights. Laboratory Testing is fully equipped to prepare test specimens for all metal tests performed in our destructive testing departments.
