JCS Technology can  provided an independent Metal testing service. This work has mainly consisted of testing individual batches of material or product intended for use on specific projects. The objective of this service is to provide accurate test results, rapidly and in a cost effective manner. The testing consists of performing a range of tests as required by the applicable specification. This has been both in the laboratory, on site at our clients facility or at one of our dedicated test sites.

Environmental Testing

A wide range of enviromental chambers are available

  • Salt spray and Copper Assisted Salt Spray
  • Industrial gasses such as Sulphur Dioxide ,Hydrogen Sulphide, Nitrogen Oxides
  • Rain
  • Dirt
  • Sand
  • Humidity
  • Temperature

Fluid Exposure.

A range of fluids from simulated fuels through to deicer fluids used in aerospace applications are available. Exposure of products and materials to fluids found in service can ensure their suitability and function.

Mechanical Testing

JCS Technology  can accommodate a  range of mechanical testing for metallic materials


Test such as but not limited to:-


Bend tests                    Tensile                              Impact


Chemical Analysis

At JCST we are able to combine a comprehensive range of both classical wet chemistry and instrumental techniques to give the most cost effective solutions to most chemical problems.

Classical wet chemistry

The wet chemistry basically falls into two distinct areas

Using classic methods to identify chemical species

Using standard methods to isolate the chemical species under investigation and then identify the species and if necessary quantify the amount present.  Identification can be achieved by a colour change or possibly pH. The amount present can be identified by the intensity of colour although this would normally be done instrumentally or by precipitation.

Using classical methods to prepare samples for analysis by instrumental methods

Samples of metals for analysis are often dissolved in acids to enable the resulting solution to be analysed using such techniques as Atomic Absorption/emission. In this way classical methods enable the samples to be analysed in the most effective way.

Instrumental Techniques

At JCST we have a wide range of instrumental methods available to analyse your samples. Methods such as:-

  • Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy 
  • Ultraviolet and Visible Absorption Spectrophotemetry

Physical Testing

Wear Test

Organic coating for  exteriors


Gravelometer chip test
