|| Metallurgy and corrosion
Our modern, well-equipped laboratories have facilities for examining all metal building materials, in particular carbon steel, CrNi steel and copper building materials.
- light microscopy
- scanning electron microscopy
- quantitative image analysis
- ambulant metallography
- small applied load and micro-hardness
Examining cases of damage
including securing evidence and expert opinion, e.g. damage to components due to:
- forced rupture
- vibration rupture
- hydrogen embrittlement
- material fatigue
- construction, manufacturing, assembly and operating mistakes
- assessment of corrosion damage in construction and house building
- assessment of coating damage
- evaluation of state of corrosion in load-bearing components (also "stainless" steel) in indoor swimming pools
