How can you ensure the safety and efficacy of products containing metal?

Industrial pipes

Predicting how a product will behave under certain circumstances is an essential part of the design process. The metallic materials used in your products can be mechanically tested to provide the information needed to ensure that these products will be safe, effective and in compliance with regulatory standards. Materials can be tested for performance under different temperatures, in different cyclic patterns and under different load types.

Metallic materials can undergo additional mechanical testing, including:

  • Tensile strength testing
  • Bend testing
  • Stampability testing
  • Compressive strength testing
  • Impact testing
  • Hardness testing

Accurate, reliable testing from SGS

We can help you to ensure that your products are fit for purpose. Our mechanical tests for metallic materials are performed by highly qualified teams in laboratories that comply with local and international standards.

We test metallic materials for:

  • Wear resistance
  • Ductile-brittle transition
  • Deflection temperature
  • Density
  • Bending strength
  • Tensile strength
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Impact resistance
  • Interlaminar shear stress
  • Softening and melting points
  • Surface tension
  • Tensile strength
  • Thermal expansion
  • Viscosity
  • Burn/flame resistance
  • Durable features

We also perform non-destructive testing (NDT), echo impact testing and micro-vibration detection.

Our tests will provide you with accurate data that allows you to determine the true mechanical properties of the metals used in your design. We compile the necessary information you need to start your project while following the methodology needed to ensure that you comply with the required specifications, standards and regulations. Testing will allow you to obtain certifications that will confirm your product’s expected performance and increase its value.
