Materials Testing


Our materials testing services are considered as complementary to NDT or for analysing specific failures or material components.

Destructive Tests: incorporate physical and mechanical test methods to establish why a material has failed such as tensile strength, toughness and material hardness as well as ability to withstand certain forces (i.e. internal and external pressures).

Forensic failure analysis

Material properties validation

Tensile strength measurements

Coating and lining integrity

Non-ferrous composites

Metallurgy: using material science and advanced micro component technologies we can analyse the physical and chemical behaviour of metals. This allows us to ascertain the specific properties, potential stress failures and corrosive resistance.

Concrete: composite assessment programmes can include:

Carbonation depth testing

Acoustic sounding survey

Chloride analysis

Half-cell potential

Petrographic analysis

Sulphate content

HAC content

Cement content
