Spectro Chemical Analysis

The chemical composition of the raw material that is used to produce a fastener is all important. We are one of the few fastener companies who have an in house capability to undertake material analysis.

Our Spectromax metal analyser has recently been serviced and calibrated to a wide range of materials, including carbon, alloy and stainless steels.

We were delighted to be informed that the results were very consistent and accurate, with our analyser passing with flying colours!
