Rare Earth Metal - Alfa Chemistry

Metallographic Inspection

Metallographic Inspection

The microstructure of metal materials determines the performance of the material, which is one of the important methods to study the microstructure and composition of metal materials. Metallographic photos can visually characterize the structure of the material, phases, grains, inclusions et al, and metallographic analysis is also an effective means to evaluate the pros and cons of the material process and find the causes of failures and defects. Quantitative metallographic principles are used to determine the three-dimensional space morphology of the metal from the microstructure and calculation of the grinding surface or film of the two-dimensional metallographic sample, analyzing the composition of the metal, and quantitative relationship. Alfa Chemistry is a professional testing platform for rare earth metals. With advanced equipment and experienced professionals, Alfa Chemistry can reasonably adjust the plan according to customer needs and provide efficient and fast metallographic testing.


Our Services

The microstructure of the metal material determines the performance and applicability of the material. Through metallographic analysis and testing, the internal phase, grain, and three-dimensional structure of the metal can be clarified in rare earth metal materials. At the same time, metallographic analysis can also be used as the main basis to evaluate the quality of metal materials and find failures and defects. Alfa Chemistry has the relevant equipment for testing the metallographic analysis of rare earth metals, which has a professional team with sufficient experience, integrating customer needs and environmental protection, and customizing test programs from multiple angles and directions to meet customer needs. The services we can provide about rare earths metallographic analysis includes but not limited to:

❖ Metallographic analysis

❖ Scheme design and improvement

❖ Quality control (finished or semi-finished products)

Metallographic Inspection


The significance of metallographic analysis

Metallographic analysis and testing of rare earth metal materials play an irreplaceable role in the development of new materials. It can help understand the microscopic composition of metal materials and determine the three-dimensional structure and grain information of the material. Metallographic analysis is also the basis and evidence for determining the quality of rare earth metal materials. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct metallographic analysis and testing on rare earth metal materials.
