Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) Inspection and Consulting Services

When stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is suspected, our metallurgical analysis team can quickly provide you with testing, inspection, and analysis services to help determine the size and scope of the problems. SCC is often indicated by branching cracks, as shown in the montage of SCC micrographs below. Whether it’s in-field inspection or laboratory analysis, G2MT Labs has got you covered.

Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) [1] is a common and dangerous form of cracking that occurs due to the combination of stress and corrosive environments [2]. Stresses can occur for a variety of reasons, including welding, physical damage, forming, machining, grinding, heat treatment, and operating stresses. In combination with corrosive environments, stress corrosion cracks can form in a wide variety of industrial metals and materials.
