Copper Alloy Analysis Testing
A superior conductor of electricity and heat, copper is a commonly alloyed metal known for its corrosion resistance, toughness, and ductility. At SGS MSi, our experienced team of engineers and chemists provides full-service chemical and metallurgical analysis for copper base alloys and other metals. Determining chemical composition and understanding alloy characteristics is a cost-effective way to verify material quality and performance.
Known for their versatility, copper base alloys have a wide range of uses, from plumbing to electronics. Common applications include:
- Plumbing fixtures
- Power lines
- High conductivity wiring
- Spark plugs
- Cooking utensils
When combined with the right metals, copper provides superior wear resistance, durability and corrosion resistance. Throughout chemical testing, it is SGS MSi’s goal to provide customers with an accurate, detailed composition of your copper base alloy. Our team also certifies materials to applicable ASTM and industry standards.
Specializing in brass, bronze and other copper alloys, SGS MSi provides the following chemical analyses and procedures:
