Materials Testing

As a significant portion of our R&D business is focused on the development of materials and chemical formulations that must perform in extreme environments, METSS has the expertise and resources needed to support a broad range of materials testing and characterization programs.  This expertise is used to support our internal R&D programs, as well as a significant number of technology assessment programs where the potential for degenerative chemical interactions with materials must be well defined.

Typical materials testing programs may emphasize the following:

  • Materials identification
  • Physical property testing
  • Mechanical property testing
  • Thermal analysis
  • Thermal conductivity testing
  • Chemical compatibility testing
  • Temperature-dependent properties
  • Environmental stability testing
  • Corrosion resistance testing
  • Thermal-oxidative stability testing
  • Failure analysis
  • Mass transport property characterization
  • Test methodology development
