Microstructure analysis from SGS – evaluate metal products and materials, and identify the treatments needed to achieve the desired properties.

Pipelines in sunset

To evaluate metal products and materials, you need precise microstructural analysis. We offer a wide range of microstructure analyses to help you determine the preferred microstructure for your metals, through specified processing or heat treatment to achieve your desired material properties.

Why choose microstructure analysis from SGS?

We can help you:

  • Gain microstructural evaluations across the broad spectrum of metals
  • Identify a material’s response to processing, such as heat treatment, welding or mechanical forming 
  • Evaluate material degradation and failure mechanisms, such as corrosion and creep

World-leading microstructure analysis reviews from a trusted provider

As a world-leading provider of metallurgical services we offer unrivaled expertise in microstructure analysis. We can perform a wide array of examinations, including grain size determinations, case depth measurement, inclusion ratings, graphite evaluation, phase determination and discontinuity identification.

We can also provide a detailed engineering report, identifying the material’s microstructure accompanied with high resolution digital photographs.
