Bodycote Launches New Failure Investigation Micro- Website

Bodycote Materials Testing Group has launched a new micro-website focusing on its failure investigation (forensic) services.

Bodycote Materials Testing is one of the largest independent providers of materials testing services in the world and operates a chain of laboratories strategically situated throughout the U.K., Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, the U.S.A. and the Middle East.

With fully equipped laboratories, Bodycote can offer a team of materials engineers, metallurgists and technicians for materials consultancy or failure investigation. The unrivalled range of mobile chemical analysis, testing and inspection equipment enables extensive investigative work to be undertaken in-situ.

Failures are sometimes caused by inherent defects in manufactured components, or possibly by design shortcomings. Sometimes they are brought about by incorrect use such as overloading or damage by extraneous agents, and occasionally by the nature of the environment in which the end product operates.

The site focuses on the main areas of metallurgical, corrosion and polymeric failures giving an insight into the methods of testing available to determine the reason of the failure and to help the manufacturer or the end user avoid such problems in the future.

For further information on Bodycote’s failure investigation services, please log on to or send an email.
