Metallurgy Analysis

Metallurgy Analysis

In the Periodic Table, metals account for around 75% of all the elements, and the characteristics such as strength, modulus, malleability, hardness, melting point, and conductivity, etc. vary differently. In most cases, by adding various amounts of other elements, almost all of these characteristics can be modified and metals thus can be applied in many field in modern society. High-purity metals and alloys play important roles in semiconductor devices, electronic devices, automobiles, aircrafts, sputter targets, and many more industrial products. Accurate understanding of their chemical composition and failure mechanism is necessary for end users to select the right materials for their specific applications. In Alfa Chemistry, our professional metallurgists utilize a wide range of knowledge, consultance and techniques available to address metallurgical issues.
