Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Steels and alloys of various metals are widely used in industry and technology. Quick and accurate identification of the material grade is very important for the correct use of an alloy.

The grade of an alloy directly determines its durability, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, possible methods of mechanical and heat treatment. This information allows engineers, suppliers, or plant personnel to have confidence in the material properties.

Our spectrometers and analyzers rapidly and accurately identify alloy grades of various base including, but not limited to:

  • magnesium alloys
  • alluminium alloys
  • titanium alloys
  • stainless steels
  • low alloy steels
  • tool steels
  • cobalt alloys
  • nickel alloys
  • copper alloys, brasses and bronzes
  • zinc alloys
  • solders
  • precious alloys.
