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.

Customer Testimonials

“I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for the time and effort that LTI has put into the testing involved with our orders. Your staff has been invaluable over the last several years. Additionally, the fact that you are now able to perform Fracture Toughness testing in house has already proven priceless in both the turnaround time and in getting my questions answered. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with LTI since 1986 and I have come to think of LTI as an extension of Dubose. I look forward to our continued relationship.”
