Materials Testing and Investigation Services

The Rimkus Materials Testing and Investigation team specializes in material failure analysis, corrosion investigation, and weld engineering. We also offer a wide variety of professional materials testing, analysis, and consulting services.

By performing a comprehensive failure analysis, the root causes of material failures can be identified, metallurgical problems may be solved, and recommendations can be made to prevent future recurrence. Using advanced analytical equipment and techniques, our materials experts can interpret test results and provide clients with a detailed plan of action.

The professional staff also specialize in many other areas of materials engineering including, but not limited to, defect investigation, heat treatment processes, reverse engineering, coatings and platings, vendor qualification, and material selection.
