PFA

Failure Analysis Laboratory

Grant4Com Failure Analysis Laboratory provides a wide range of analysis services for the needs of many branches of industry. Chemistry and physics of traditional and novel materials often cause unpleasant surprises during product development, but including the expertise of Failure Analysis Laboratory in the project from an early phase can help ensure your product does not end up in the laboratory for less pleasant reasons. Failure Analysis Laboratory services combine wonderfully with environmental and mechanical testing, so consider booking an hour or two for PFA as well when you plan for those.
