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.
