STL performs fracture toughness testing, creep testing, traditional mechanical testing (tensile, compression, impact, hardness, ecc.) and particular tests expressly designed according the Customer’s needs.
Optical and electron microscopy
STL performs metallographic analysis, both macrographic and micrographic, on several kind of materials, by means of state-of-the-art optical and electron microscopes.
The laboratories are equipped to determine the corrosion resistance of metallic materials and of coatings.
The evaluation of the causes of failure of a component implies not only the metallographic analysis of the component itself, but often also the chemical analysis, determination of mechanical characteristics, structural verifies and the analysis of the service conditions of the process.
Specialist engineering services
One strength of Services & Testing Laboratories is to supply specialist engineering services in industrial applications.
STL performs also other services expressly realized following the Customer’s specifications.
