Metallography and Microstructure Analysis

G2MT Labs performs high-quality metallography testing in our Houston-area laboratory to accurately assess and compare the critical materials and components you rely on every day. Metallography and microstructure analysis can assess a large variety of materials properties, mechanical properties, defects, flaws, cracks, hydrogen attack, and other indications.

Our metallography and microscopy services include:metallography of high-alloy steel
