Sourcing metals for your business that meet demanding specifications is a vital and often-challenging task.
Here at Broder Metals Group we understand the issues you face and have made it our mission to supply you materials that meet your needs.
We can give you a full material supply and certification service to general industry manufacturing standards with BS EN10204 3.1 or with intent of BS EN10204 3.2 with 3rd party independent witnessing and release certification.
Broder Metals Group: Testing and Processing Services
We work with the leading Third-party organisations to meet your full independent witness and review testing requirements with the intent of EN 10204 3.2 certification.
Our partnered organisations include Lloyd’s Register, Lloyds Marine, Bureau Veritas, TUV, and Royal Sun Alliance.
To support our customers, we can organise the re-testing of material to confirm conformance to standard and bespoke project specifications, including OEM Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical requirements.
We use Test Houses with ISO\IEC 17025 accreditation, an dour material re-testing services include:
Multiple methods of chemical analysis to suit project specific requirement re-test.
Our methods of analysis include the full range of material chemistry content verification methods, including Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy, Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP), Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES), Positive Material Identification (PMI),Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF).
Corrosion testing to ensure material complies with specific corrosive end-use environments..
We complete testing in accordance with the full range of EN ISO, ASTM, and AMS standards, including Pitting & Crevice (ASTM G48), Intergranular Corrosion (IGC) Testing (ASTM A262, ASTM G28 and G67), and tests to confirm material meets NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 requirements.
We can also extend these standard tests to meet additional acceptance criteria such as extended time and temperature variations. .
As some OEM specifications require testing above and beyond the requirements of industry standards, Broder Metals Group can provide mechanical testing services to conform to high integrity applications. These include tensile testing, tensile testing at elevated temperatures, Charpy impact testing from ambient to -196°C, Izod testing, stress rupture, and hardness tests (Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers).
In addition to the mechanical evaluation mentioned above, Broder Metals Group can provide extensive metallurgical evaluation to ensure material cleanliness and the absence of deleterious elements in the material structure, as well as report on a material’s Ferrite Count (both standard and 30 field), as well as Grain Size evaluation.
As the integrity of the material is critical to most applications, Ultrasonic testing (UT) is a general requirement to ensure the base material is free from cracks and defects. However, due to the wide range of specifications written for the performance of UT inspections, it not viable to certify the base material to all methods at the Mill. In general, here only a standard UT test is performed, usually to a predetermined PSL (Product Specification Level) standard, such as PSL3 or PSL4.
Broder Metals Group can offer full UT service, with most tests carried out in-house.
