Positive Material Identification (PMI) of Metal Alloys using Handheld LIBS

AppNote LIBS003: Positive Material Identification (PMI) of Metal Alloys

Background

Today, alloy component traceability is more critical than ever. From petrochemical to power generation to aerospace, positive material identification (PMI) and verification programs can eliminate alloy mix-ups, improve product quality, and prevent injuries. PMI ensures that the specified alloy is used for every component, whether it has already been used in service or is just being introduced into service, is of the correct material. Parts made of the wrong alloy can corrode or wear more rapidly than expected when placed in service.
