Fastener Failure Analysis
At SGS MSi Testing, our nationally recognized failure analysis lab is run by metallurgical engineers with decades of experience. Fasteners are critical to nearly every aspect of manufacturing, and fastener failure puts product integrity and human safety at risk. The SGS MSi team identifies fastener failure caused by corrosion, overload, fatigue, and other mechanisms.
Partnering with dozens of industries, we support testing parameters required to meet ASTM, ISO and SAE fastener specifications and PPAP testing requirements. The SGS MSi metallurgical laboratory provides comprehensive failure analysis on nearly all grades and alloys, and fastener failure analysis specifications include ASTM F606/F606-M, ASTM B117, SAE J78, SAE J81, SAE J423, SAE J429, and SAE J1199.
Comprehensive fastener testing capabilities include:
Adhering to all Fastener Quality Act parameters, SGS MSi engineers provide peace of mind for your fastener-testing project. Each certified report identifies failure mechanisms using annotated photographs and easy-to-understand language, and is designed to prevent future failures while reducing manufacturing costs.
