At our facilities in Surrey BC and Nisku AB, Metallic and non-metallic materials can be analyzed for chemical composition, microstructure, material properties, corrosion resistance, and environmental stability. The accurate testing allows us to make proactive recommendations to reduce risk and failure, and to help to identify manufacturing materials for longer lifecycles and safer processes. Our in-house state of the art machine shops provide quick and accurate specimen preparation for all laboratory tests. Our technical libraries contain an extensive collection of materials standards, both current and historical, for evaluating test results.
