“The main tip I can give to any PMI testing technician is to focus on sample preparation. We don’t see it done nearly enough.” – Chris Carolan
PMI (Positive Material Identification) testing is the analysis of materials to determine the chemical composition of a metal or alloy at particular (usually multiple) steps of alloy manufacturing or in-process alloy installation.
