LABORATORY TEST

TENSILE TEST

Tensile test provides quantitative data of the material's uniaxial strength and behaviour. Our facilities are capable of testing samples up to 1000 kN (100 tonne) of force, and at a maximum temperature of 600ºC via an external attached furnace for hot tensile test.

Our procedures are MS ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited to the following standards:
Tensile test at room temperature
  • ASTM A370:2016
  • ASTM E8M:2016
  • BS EN 10002 Part 1:2001
  • EN ISO 6892-1:2016
  • JIS Z2241:2011
  • EN ISO 895:1995

Tensile test at elevated temperature (hot tensile test)
  • ISO 6892-2: 2011

Through thickness test
  • ASTM A770-03(R2012
  • API 2H-2006 S4
  • BS EN 10164:2004

Reinforced bar tensile test
  • BS 4449:2005 + A2:2009
  • MS 144:2014
  • MS 145:2014
  • MS 146:2014
  • MS ISO 15630-1:2012

Bolt and nut tensile test

Mechanical Bend Test

BEND TEST

Bend test is a qualitative test to evaluate the ductility of the product / specimen and/or to visually identify inherent defects (if any) within the weldment.

Our procedures are MS ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited to the following standards:
Welded test coupons
  • ASTM A370-2016
  • JIS Z2248:2006
  • ASTM E 190 : 2014
  • ASTM E 290 : 2014
  • ISO 7438 : 2016

Reinforced bar bend test and re-bend test
  • MS 144:2014
  • MS 145:2014
  • MS 146:2014

CHARPY IMPACT

Charpy impact test, as the name suggests, evaluates the energy absorbed during impact of a fixed load which is delivered via a pendulum in free fall. Upon impact, the material undergoes plastic deformation prior to fracture which is quantified by the energy absorbed.

Body centre cubic metals behaves in a brittle manner below a temperature lower than its threshold temperature known as the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature. Thus, leading to catastrophic events like the sinking of Titanic which was deemed “the Unsinkable” when this property was not understood or evaluated.

Our procedures are MS ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited to the following standards:
  • ASTM E23-2016
  • ASTM A370-2016
  • ISO 148-1: 2010
