A wide range of materials are routinely processed by the metallography laboratory to facilitate subsequent characterisation or processing.


Preparation of polished/etched sections of carbon, low alloy and heat resistant steels, as well as non-ferrous alloys is performed routinely.


Specialised preparation techniques for unusual or difficult materials, which may be porous, friable or extremely small, have also been developed and applied successfully.

Capability selections


  • Cutting and polishing
  • Sample preparation
  • Optical microscopy
  • Benchtop SEM.
