Our service offer encloses:

For characterization, thermal treatment, shape programming and surface finish of Shape Memory Alloys based on NiTi we can provide following services


  • Mechanical properties (loading and unloading), plateau force, plateau stress as a function of  temperature (0 to 180 °C ). Wires, bars, metal sheet and strips, can be characterized using an appropriate testing system with load gages of 10, 100, 500 and 1000 N.
  • Determination of the transition temperatures ( Ms , Mf , Rs, Rf, As, Af  ) using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) in the temperature range of -80 °C to 600 °C
  • Microstructure investigations, chemical composition, roughness testing
  • Assessment of the biocompatibility of NiTi alloyings and other materials, which can be carried out in different cell cultures
  • Corrosion testing in vitro
  • Development of customized parts and apparatuses
  • Development of heat treatment processes for specific appliances.
  • Biological compatibility investigations in customized cell lines following ISO 10993-5
  • Development of surface finish processes, including electropolishing
  • Development of functional coatings (ceramic and cermet thin films, polymer and polymer-ceramics composites.

Following services can be provided for engineering materials:


  • Failure analysis of fractured parts
  • Microstructure investigations, microanalysis of welded and soldered joints and  protective coatings
  • Mechanical testing of metallic and non-metallic materials (determination of   R p0,01, Rp0,2, modulus of elasticity, Rm  etc.)
  • Heat treatments
  • Investigation of corrosion properties

Functional Thin Film Coatings using Sol-Gel-Processes
