Metallography – Mirror Polish To Reveal Microstructure

A team of qualified and experienced metallurgists perform the metallurgical evaluation of samples by metallography. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM/EDS) equipment provides magnification to 300,000X for microanalysis of very small samples and areas of interest.



Our metallurgical testing services incorporate optical microscopy to characterize material microstructure. The evaluation of sample by our experience metallurgist includes but not limited to given as below.

  • Microstructural Evaluation
  • Grain Size Measurement
  • Inclusion Count
  • Ferrite Content
  • Coating Thickness
  • Case Depth
  • Carburizing
  • Thermal Damage
  • Micro Hardness

Macroscopic and microscopic examinations, give information about defects, flow pattern after forging, rolling direction, inclusion content/cleanliness, type of structure (austenite/ferrite/bainite/martensite), grain size, amount of ferrite, depth of (de)carburization etc.



Field metallography testing by replica technique is the specialty of EILAB & extensively utilized as a part of asset integrity, condition assessment and FFS evaluation. As a brief the replica technique is used for below assets or equipment.

  • Boiler Tubes
  • Heat Exchanger tubes
  • Reactor Tubes,
  • Furnace Tubes
  • Inline Pipe, Tanks
