Positive Material Identification
Fast, Accurate Verification & Identification
Positive Material Identification or PMI Testing provides fast analysis of metal alloys through a non destructive method for material verification and identification. Laboratory Testing Inc. delivers highly reliable qualitative and/or semi-quantitative PMI Test results in Certified Test Reports to fit your requirements.
When PMI Testing is an Option
- Analyzing composition to verify or identify materials
- Identifying material grade
- Confirming material conformance to specification
- Verifying filler material in welding applications
PMI Inspection is an integral component of quality control and safety compliance for businesses in many industries. Alloys are specified for corrosion resistance, temperature tolerance or mechanical properties, and a material error can result in component failure. This method can be very helpful in selecting appropriate materials for your application, as well as in verifying that materials received are what you ordered.
LTI’s technicians are highly trained and experienced to ensure quick, reliable test results. Our service team is dedicated to providing the highest quality support.
The right people, combined with our strict quality system, make Laboratory Testing Inc. the right choice:
- A2LA Accreditation
- ISO/IEC 17025 Certification
- Testing to industry Standards and Specifications
- PED Approval by Lloyd’s Register
- ASTM E572
- ASTM E1476
ICP Analysis is another method offered by LTI of providing in-depth information about the composition of a material, including trace analysis.
The Test Process
PMI Analysis is performed with a X-ray Fluorescence analyzer that can also be used as a portable hand-held unit. The equipment provides direct analysis of solid metal samples for major elements, thin metal films, and can be used for RoHS screening of metallic and non-metallic samples.
