Positive Material Testing

Positive Material Identification (PMI) is the identification and chemical analysis of various metal alloys through nondestructive methods. PMI can be conducted on-site or in an office type setting.

Understanding the metals in your application

Two hundred years ago, there were 12 known metals. Today, we know of 86—as well as a corresponding increase in alloys and steel types available. PMI helps our customers choose the right materials for their application from this vast market. In production, PMI confirms through certification that the materials our customers have received are, in fact, the materials they've purchased. At all stages, PMI services allow clients to build successful business plans for their products and processes.

If you use metals, steels, and alloys in your business, a PMI testing program will allow you to make purchase decisions—and process decisions—confidently and cost-effectively.

Brinnel Hardness Testing

Hardness is a characteristic that applies to a range of materials—metals and nonmetals alike— and is defined as the resistance of the material to deformation. ASII experts measure hardness according to the requirements of the material and its applications with equipment calibrated to hardness scales, including

*  Mohs Hardness: Devised in 1812 and based on relative resistance to scratching, this test is now used mainly to identify minerals in the field.

*  Brinell Hardness: The oldest method still in common use, this instrument employs an indentor ball. Brinell hardness testing is frequently used to measure hardness of castings and forgings.
