Metal Content Testing

Suncor® Stainless utilizes X-Ray Florescence chemical analysis to determine the accurate metal content of our products before, during, and after the manufacturing process. XRF is an elemental analysis technique that is highly accurate in determining major elements and providing a broad elemental survey in metals.

Strength Testing

At Suncor we use a variety of instruments to test the strength of our parts against the stated specifications. We perform extensive stress tests on all our products with stated load performances. These types of test would include Tensile/Pull testing.

Tensile Testing is a fundamental materials science and engineering test in which a sample of raw material or product is subjected to a controlled tension until failure to determine strength.

Corrosion Resistance Testing

We also perform extensive materials proofing for corrosion resistance, utilizing a sophisticated salt spray testing process. The salt spray testing or salt fog test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method used to check the corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings. This places the product under the strain of 5 years of constant ocean water exposure.
