Non-Metallic Testing

Fast and Accurate Evaluation of Non-Metallic Materials

Non-metallic materials are rapidly displacing steel in many applications due to their unique corrosion resistance and high strength-to-weight properties. Although it is well known that hidden defects in these materials can cause premature failure in a variety of structures and components, there has until now been a lack of reliable inspection techniques for many non-metallic components.

With the introduction of the Spectrum Evisive scanning technology, that dilemma is now solved.
