Sample Preparation/Cross-section

Capability Sample Preparation

Our team has over 10 years of Materialographic experience in sample preparation.

We specialize in:
  • Electronics Packages (Chip on glass, Ceramic BGA etc).
  • Thermal Spray Coatings for Aerospace and Marine Industries (Tungsten Carbide Coatings, Thermal Barrier Coatings,etc).
  • Composite material specimen for Automotive Industry and R&D Institute.

  • We work with:
  • External Laboratory Service Providers to develop sample preparation recipes for their clients' samples.
  • Individual companies' QA or R&D laboratory when they are unable to prepare their samples to meet their schedule.

    Dye & Pry

    Capability Dye & Pry

    We have performed numerous Dye & Pry Analysis on Ball Grid Array (BGA) for our clients.

    Standard process involved the impregnation of the BGA with DYKEM red dye. Once the dye is baked dry in the oven, it is pry open for visual analysis under the stereo microscope.

    Metallography Courses for Aerospace Coating/Electronics Packages

    We provide metallography courses for our clients.

    We work with our clients to develop training modules in both theory and practical that apply directly to their business by focusing on the materials and processes used to manufacture their product. Training classes can be conducted at our clients' sites.

    These BGA cross-section images were the result of our training provided to one of our clients. They did this for an American MNC (Multi-National Company) based in Singapore for qualifying their manufacturing process. Client Cross Section 100X Client Cross Section 500X
