Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Positive material identification (PMI) is used to analyses and identify material grade and alloy composition for quality and safety control.
A rapid, non-destructive method, positive material identification is performed on a wide range of components and assets and provides a semi-quantitative chemical analysis. It is used for both material verification and identification.

The method is utilized for quality control and safety compliance and is an integral part of both production and asset integrity management across many industries including oil and gas, power, chemical, pharmaceutical, nuclear, aerospace and fabrication.
