Surface and Materials Characterisation

We use our laboratory resources to help our clients find the answers to their problems, complex or straightforward, in a quick and efficient manner. Our laboratory is co-used with Dalarna University, is very well equipped and provides excellent resources with which to solve a wide variety of materials related problems.

Typical specialized projects include:

  • Examination of stains/foreign particles on metal surfaces
  • Fracture analysis on components after fatigue testing
  • Examination of corroded surfaces
  • Evaluation of component quality from a new sub-contractor
  • Examination of flaking coating/paint
  • Coating/oxide thickness determination
  • Hardening method evaluation
  • Characterisation of microstructure/phase distribution
  • Surface roughness measurements (Ra, Sa, Sz, etc.)
