RESCOLL, NADCAP Lab for metallic (and non-metallic) materials offers micro and metallographic analyses including:

  • Means of cutting and collecting samples,
  • Micrographic Cut preparation line, polishing, acid attack,
  • High Definition digital camera,
  • Optical Microscope and image analysis software,
  • Calcining Furnace,
  • Micro durometer Vickers and Brinell,
  • Electronic scanning Microscope (SEM) equipped with EDX,
  • Expertise on breakage of parts (fractography)

The services meet the demands of the customers :

  • Reception controls of the raw materials,
  • Production controls
  • Projects in development.


Rescoll has customers qualifications in the aeronautical sector (AIRBUS, SAFRAN, GE), but is also equiped to work on micro and metallographic analyses in other sectors of activity such as medical, energy, railroad, naval, etc.
