Applied Technical Services provides micro tensile testing through our tensile testing laboratory. The experts in the tensile testing laboratory utilize various methods to determine the tensile properties of select materials. The tensile lab can provide reporting on percent elongation, tensile strength, yield strength, and reduction of area. Our experts perform all micro tensile testing to relevant standards and certifications.

What is Micro Tensile Testing?

Micro tensile testing frequently accompanies macro or large-scale tensile testing. Large-scale tensile testing is imperative to understanding a material’s fracture strength and yield strength but falls short in evaluating individual interfaces or phases. Micro tensile testing aims to quantify the properties of a single interface or phase. A focused-ion beam (FIB) prepares a sample for micro tensile testing, creating a dog-bone-shaped sample that remains attached to the original sample material. The testing machines pulls the micro samples, and makes measurements for tensile strength, elongation, and percent elongation at yield and failure.

Tensile Testing Capabilites

The tensile testing laboratory at Applied Technical Services offers a wide range of tensile testing methods. Utilizing Uniaxial Machines, our experts can employ any of the following methods:

Our technicians regularly perform tensile testing on a broad range of test materials, most commonly being:
