Metal Tensile Testing

Metal Tensile Testing

One of the most common engineering materials, steel is a staple in the manufacture and construction of tools, buildings, bridges, appliances, furniture, pipelines, and more. Analyzing the ultimate tensile strength of steel and alloyed metals, SGS MSi’s tension testing methods assess the stress-strain response and help you select the best steel type for your application.

Subjecting your stainless steel or carbon steel sample to uniaxial tension until the point of failure, SGS MSi’s steel strength testing determines:

  • Peak stress
  • Yield strength
  • Elongation
  • Reduction of area
  • Ductility under stress

Over the past 30+ years, SGS MSi Testing & Engineering has become a nationally recognized metallurgical testing laboratory performing mechanical and chemical analysis, weld testing, and more. Metal and steel tensile testing are available for many industries, including:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive & transportation
  • Construction
  • Food & beverage
  • Agriculture
  • Foundry
  • Mining
  • Power generation
  • Nuclear
  • Petrochemical
  • Railroad
  • Shipbuilding
  • Medical technology

Committed to quality, SGS MSi’s team of metallurgical engineers works to preserve product integrity and help you select the best material for every job. To receive a project estimate, inquire about a steel strength test, or request steel tensile testing with next-day and same-day turnarounds.
