Aerospace Materials Testing

EAG has provided aerospace materials testing services for over 50 years. We have partnered with aerospace customers to reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency by utilizing composite materials, as well as complied with the stringent requirements for military electronics whilst maintaining IP security and ITAR registration.

Services for Aerospace Materials Testing

The next generation of lighter and stronger aerospace materials presents challenges of controlling purity and reliability. Using advanced analytical tools and proven methodologies, EAG Laboratories can support all aerospace materials testing from R&D to failure analysis. Our scientists and engineers are experts at translating scientific questions into novel study designs and test systems and have applied advanced analytical methodologies to answer complex engineering and manufacturing questions. We have solved complex failures of components such as aircraft fuselage, landing gears, gears and bearings, high pressure hydraulic hoses and fuel lines, turbine engines (compressor & hot section components), turbine and compressor blades, propellers, hydraulic system/fuel lines, LVDT and temperature sensors and more.


EAG offers a comprehensive suite of materials testing services for the aerospace industry, meeting the industry’s exacting standards for tight controls of material properties, composition and chemistry. EAG is a certified partner (ISO 9001:2015, ISO 17025, DSCC, ITAR compliant, MIL standards compliant) and offers services to innovate new high-performance materials, test the reliability of aerospace electronic systems and investigate structural and metallurgical failures of aircraft. Here are just a few ways we can help:

EAG offers production support for tracing elemental impurities in ingots, manufactured parts, and the raw metal powders that go into nickel base superalloys, titanium alloys, cobalt alloys, and other alloys.

Coatings analysis includes depth distribution measurements and full chemical survey characterizations of optical, reflective, polymer, organic, environmental barrier, conversion, and corrosion resistive coatings.

We offer full structural characterization of CMC materials, including chemical composition, impurities, microstructure, and interface chemistry of reinforcement fibers such as SiC, SiCN and carbon fibers.

Aerospace Materials Testing

We monitor impurity concentrations in raw materials (sulfur, phosphorus) with great consistency and sensitivity using techniques such as GDMS, IGA, ICP-OES and ICP-MS.

EAG performs system-level testing for reliability and failure analysis of component and modules, including selection of tester platform, hardware and fixture design, as well as ATE test program in both development and production.

DPA testing is performed on materials used in aerospace, commercial, military, and government applications. EAG is DLA- (Defense Logistics Agency) certified for various MIL-STD testing requirements.

EAG provides internal gas and water vapor content in microelectronic components with troubleshooting and corrective actions. We support MIL-STD-883, Method 1018 and MIL-STD-750, Method 1018.

Failure analysis investigations of fractures include fatigue, slow crack growth mechanisms, brittle and ductile overload, stress, corrosion, oxidation and hydrogen embrittlement.

Our sister company, Eurofins E&E, can evaluate components for use in extreme electromagnetic & environmental conditions to identify design flaws and bring equipment from development to production.
