In compliance with ASTM, ISO and other industrial specifications, SGS MSi’s degreed engineering team performs metal tensile testing to meet expedited scheduling requirements. Fundamental to mechanical metal testing, tensile testing determines how your sample will react to applied force.

During metal tension tests, we subject your metal or alloy sample to uniaxial tension until the point of failure. This metal strength testing is used to assess:

  • Ultimate tensile strength
  • Peak stress
  • Yield strength
  • Reduction of area
  • Elongation
  • Ductility
