Inclusion Content Test

HomeServicesInclusion Content Test
Non-metallic inclusions are dispersed particles of various chemical compositions (i.e., oxides, sulphides, and Aluminates) which are produced during the melting and manufacturing process of steel production. The non-metallic Inclusions have a significant influence on most mechanical properties such as formability, toughness and even corrosion resistance. Therefore, determining the non-metallic inclusion content of steel products is one of the most important parameters of metallurgical quality.


Having advanced microscopy equipment, ABEN Technical Services offers a number of microscopic test methods for assessing the content of the non-metallic inclusion in steel according to:
• ASTM E45: Standard Test Methods for Determining the Inclusion Content of Steel
• AS 2197: Micrographic Assessment of the Non-Metallic Inclusion Content in Wrought Steel
