Determine strength characteristics of metals with tensile, yield and elongation testing services from Alliance Steel.
A tensile test measures the force required to break a material’s sample specimen and the extent to which the specimen stretches or elongates to that breaking point. The test is commonly used to find a material’s ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and elongation.
Ultimate tensile strength is the maximum stress material can sustain prior to fracture, while elongation measures the test piece’s gauge length increase after fracture. Yield strength is the amount of stress applied when deformation begins.
Alliance Steel offers a variety of test methods to fit application requirements and meet industry specifications at a competitive price. Our metallurgical experts generate reports tailored to each customer’s unique needs.
