Accurate Metals Testing performs a variety of materials testing on items such as tensile testing, OES Chemical Analysis, Rockwell, Brinell and micro/macro Vickers hardness, macro etching, Charpy V Notch, and weld qualifications.
Accurate Metals Testing Inc. was founded in 2006 as a father and son operation. Together, we combine 30 years of Metallurgical Testing experience, that dates back to the mid 1980’s in Santa Fe Springs CA where we got introduced to the Laboratory Environment.
The unique California Market gave us valuable experience with exotic materials used in the aerospace industry as well as a different techniques for sectioning, machining and grinding.
We at Accurate Metals Testing are committed to deliver reliable test results and quick turn around, while keeping affordable pricing.
