Knowledge is power

Chromin features a modern metallurgical lab equipped for various types of material research – from straightforward material analysis to a complex damage investigation with photographs of structures. 


Our techniques


  • Measure layer thickness of ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Determine core hardness according to Rockwell, Brinell, and Vickers
  • Determine surface hardness according to Vickers and Micro Vickers
  • Measure surface roughness of Ra, Rt, Rz, and Rmax 
  • Material spectral analysis (determination of chemical composition and substance/material number)


We can perform various measurements on site if desired. All research can be concluded with a comprehensive report, including images. Reports are also available digitally. 

  • Product and thread measurements (3D measurement technique)
  • Material structure analysis and residual austenite measurement
  • Stereomicroscopy
  • Damage investigation (corrosion, fracture, and cracking)
  • Material choice and advice

‘We combine high-quality research in our lab with the most innovative techniques, always adapted to the customer’s needs and circumstances.’


Our goal is always to help our customers level up. We go from challenge to solution in a unique five-step process.
