Positive Material Identification (PMI)
PMI or Positive Material Identification is the testing of materials to determine the chemical composition of a metal or alloy.
Using the right metal or alloy can mean the difference between a safe, efficient operation and one that is not fit for purpose. But how do you know if the material you’re using is up to the job at hand?
All metals and alloys have their own specific properties, including heat resistance, corrosion resistance, durability etc. Understanding the composition of a metal or alloy and identifying its properties is crucial.
PMI is the term used for the testing of materials to determine their chemical composition. This enables all parties to understand what metal or alloy is to hand.
