Metallography and Imaging & Analysis
We provide metallographic preparation of samples and development of metallographic procedures for polishing complex specimens. You can trust the material properties you are observing in mounted specimens are true, and not artifacts of poor metallographic technique, such as material pull-out or lack of edge retention.
We can polish and etch a wide variety and combination of materials with dissimilar properties to a uniform plane.
