Metallurgical Analysis

Understanding metallurgy of the weld is at the core of weld evaluation. Careful analysis of weld section is required for complete understanding of weld and related issues including cracks, porosities, weld misalignment, phase segregation, heat affected zone (HAZ). Weld sections are the only way to identify type of bond being formed; whether it is a solder, braze, solid-state, or fusion bond. We provide complete anlysis of the weld including sectioning, metallography, SEM/EDS, and a written report with detailed assessment of our findings.
