Evaluation of non-metallic inclusions


A microstructural examination is performed in order to define the presence of non-metallic inclusions in steel.

The observation is made at 100X and, by comparison with reference images contained in the standard, it is possible to make a quantitative evaluation of the presence of non-metallic inclusions of a longitudinal section of the steel.

What is it for?
The presence of non-metallic inclusions influences the parameters such as resistance characteristics, workability, the fatigue life of a component; it is therefore important to be aware of the presence of inclusions in the base material.

On what this analysis is performed / sampling
The sample should be obtained from a section of the component as provided in the standard.

Reference Standards
The main reference standards are the UNI 3244  and the ASTM E45.

The metallurgical laboratory of TEC Eurolab, offers its expertise for your testing needs in this field.
