Defense Testing You Can Depend On

Complete material testing and analysis are critical to ensure government and military equipment is reliable, durable and high-performing in any environment.

Applying chemical, mechanical and metallurgical tests on materials like titanium alloys  or rare earth elements verifies chemical composition, microstructure, and properties to ensure the highest quality standard.

NSL Analytical is proud to support materials and manufacturing innovation across the United States defense supply chain.

Our services support the production of metal alloys that are critical to groups like the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Space Force for development of everything from submarines to hypersonic vehicles.

This includes the chemistry validation of metal ingots that are processed using castings and forgings, and evaluation of new metal additive technologies that are improving readiness across the board.

It includes testing of critical materials like rare earth elements and titanium. Applications we support include hypersonics and submarine manufacturing.

Government organizations trust NSL to provide full-service testing and analysis. We deliver fast and accurate results for the safety and dependability of finished products. Especially considering the critical importance of the application, all of our materials testing is executed with strict scrutiny in areas such as:

  • Material composition
  • Mechanical properties
  • Microstructure and defects
  • Corrosion vulnerability
  • And more

The qualified analysts at NSL use advanced equipment and fully redundant processes to provide reliable data with fast turnarounds.
