Laboratory Testing

Working from our laboratory 4RS scientists and technologists employ a comprehensive range of methods to investigate and evaluate.

According to client and site requirements, we may use chemical, compositional or mechanical analysis, or comparison evaluations (performance against industry standards and / or ‘new’ verses ‘old’), to produce the most helpful and effective results.

We pride ourselves on the depth and rigour of our analytical processes.


  • Compositional Evaluation
    Elemental and chemical analysis
  • Mechanical Analysis
    Evaluation of the compressive and tensile strength properties of materials, for example:
    • Hardness testing and evaluation
    • Impact testing and evaluation
    • Failure analysis and investigation
  • Macroscopic and Microscopic Analysis
    Investigations using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and elemental analysis via EDXS.
