Modern Laboratory and Testing Complex

Aktau facility is equipped with probably the most modern laboratory complex in all Central Asia, capable to run all types of mechanical testing and spectrograph analysis.

The Laboratory was commissioned in April 2011 and was subsequently registered under № KZ-И-13.1236 dated 26.10.2011г.
Testing and laboratory analysis is performed as per GOST, as well as international standards: ISO 178-1, ISO 148-2, EN 10045, DIN 50115, ASTM E 23.

Scope of services:

1. Mechanical Tests of base metal

  • Yield strength, tensile strength, elongation
  • Charpy impact test at T from -90С до +200С
  • Percentage shear
  • Hardness (Brinell; Rockwell; Vickers)


2. Mechanical Properties of the weld

  • Static tensile
  • Static bend
  • Charpy guided bend from -90С till +200С
  • Non-destructive testing of the weld


3. Metallographic Analysis

  • Non-metallic inclusions
  • Steel grain size
  • Macrostructure
  • Chemical composition of metals by spectroscopy


4. Testing of anticorrosive coatings

  • Thermo analysis
  • Penetration strength testing
  • Sample Testing
  • Vicat softening point test
  • Coated material attrition test
  • Peel test at cathode polarization
  • PE tensile and elongation test
  • Coating impact resistance test
  • Coating-steel adhesion test
