Please indicate your time frame when you contact us so we can make sure we meet your requirements.

  • How do we get samples to you?

We accept samples via all major postal and package carriers. For large samples, we recommend Freightquote, the nation’s largest online freight broker.

Please! Come on by, contact us online, by Phone (888)308-9084, or E-Mail us at (info@g2mtlabs.com). We can also make arrangements to have the samples dropped off or picked up at your convenience.

  • What about testing that isn’t listed?

Ask us! There are a lot of teststhat we don’t have listed because with ASTM’s 13,000+ standards we can’t possibly list them all. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, ask anyways. The worst we can say is no but we will always try to help point you in the right direction.

  • How do we package samples for shipping?

All samples will have different, specific, packaging needs depending on the sample. Please contact us for specific details on how to properly package and ship your sample.

One thing that applies in all cases: Do not try to put two broken pieces back together. The fracture surfaces should be preserved with as little handling or pressure as possible.

  • How do you manage quality?

G2MT Labs is an ISO 9001 quality control certified company. Our testing is conducted according to procedures and specifications from bodies such as ASME, NACE, ANSI, API, ASTM, ISO, customer’s specifications, and other testing standards such as NORSOK. All equipment used for testing equipment is controlled under the requirements of the G2MT Labs Quality Manual along with applicable specifications including ASTM E74, G1, and are traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology whenever possible.

  • What is a standard/code?

A standard is a document that consists of technical definitions, requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that function as instructions for designers/manufacturers and operators/users of equipment. Standards are considered voluntary because they are guidelines and not enforceable by law. A code is a standard that has been adopted by one or more governmental bodies and is enforceable by law.
