Material & Alloy Selection
If you are designing a new product for a new application or environment, or want to improve product quality, performance or longevity, stop premature failures from occurring or reduce the cost of products, we can help.
We'll select and specify the best material and material combinations for any environment and loading conditions, providing materials expertise in metal alloys and super alloys, ceramics, glasses, coatings, polymers, composites, and additive manufacturing materials.
After potential materials options have been identified, standardized and customized testing and exposure programs are developed. Pilot-scale lots of materials may be fabricated or manufactured for testing at Lucideon. Post-testing, full materials characterizations are conducted to validate or de-select materials.
