Observation of the microstructure is an elementary test that allows to determine the correctness of the metallurgical operations performed in accordance with the requirements of international standards and customers.
An experienced metallographer is able to predict the properties of the tested material on the basis of the observed microstructure. Microscopic examinations are performed for both metals and plastics.
We use a scanning electron microscope to observe the surface and microstructure of samples at high magnifications and the required depth of field. The dimensions of the samples are limited by the size of the microscope chamber and the dimensions of the stage.
The laboratory has software that allows for:
In order to make correct metallographic observations with the use of light and electron microscopy methods, it is necessary to prepare a good-quality metallographic sample. Many years of experience of the staff in the field of metallography guarantees professionalism and correctness of microscopic examinations.
Microscopic examinations are performed for both metals and plastic composites.
