Heat Treating Validation Testing

Verifying How Materials Respond to Treatments

Steel, iron, and other metals are hard and strong by nature, but some applications require more durable or corrosion-resistant metals that can be attained by industrial heat treating processes. Laboratory Testing Inc. offers a wide-variety of heat treatment testing and inspection services to evaluate materials following treatments.

Heat treat testing is performed to assess a material’s response to a treatment process in order to certify the material to specified requirements. Our technical expertise allows us to assess mechanical properties, determine resistance to corrosion, detect defects and more.

Laboratory Testing is a full-service material testing lab specializing in metals testing through both destructive and nondestructive test (NDT) methods. Our laboratory testing services for the heat treating industry include all the mechanical, metallurgical, corrosion and nondestructive testing needed to evaluate your products.
