Material Testing

NABL Laboratory

The chemical, mechanical, metallurgical, corrosion and Nondestructive services provided by TCR are accredited as per international standard ISO/IEC-17025: 2005 by National Accreditation Board of Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL). TCR Advanced Engineering is a NABL Laboratory for over a decade.

Testing professionals at TCR Advanced are well-versed with the requirements of various national & International codes for testing such as IS, ASTM, DIN, EN, API, ASME, AWS.

TCR Advanced has helped many industries with the use of microstructure examination as a quality control tool for determining heat treatment. TCR Advanced has taken a lead in certifying Heat Treatment Quality aspect from the point of view of a microstructure. A conventional acceptance criterion for heat treatment is through hardness testing. However, hardness testing alone can be misleading, since certain unwanted phases and its distribution is not reflected in hardness reading. Fine distribution of phases and its monitoring through microstructure is the only answer for the acceptance of heat treatment that promises desired or extended life of a component.

TCR Advanced routinely conducts tests based on the following standards:

For Chemical: ASTM E 1251, ASTM E415, IS 8811, ASTM E 1086, IS 9879
