Materials Science/Metallurgy


CED Technologies Inc.'s engineers have performed numerous investigations where a materials science and metallurgy component has been questioned as the primary or accessory in the cause of an accident. CED's metallurgists and chemists study material components to evaluate the specific properties of the material as well as investigate if there were any pre-existing defects. CED's engineers have been involved in investigating all types of materials including, metals, plastics, rubber, glass and chemicals. Our experts utilize a state-of-the-art laboratory equipped with different types of equipment to test the composition or chemical makeup of the material to examine stress and strength or to identify a defect.

Our services include:

  • Defect detection and effect investigation
  • Composite evaluation
  • Laboratory testing of metals, plastics, glass, chemicals
  • Material characterization
  • Quality and strength testing of materials
  • Experimental stress analysis
  • Fatigue and fracture mechanics analysis

Technical equipment for testing includes:

  • Optical Microscope
  • Electron Microscope
  • Fourier Transform Infrared (FR-IR) Spectrometer
  • Tensile Testing Machines
  • Industrial Microscope
  • Emission Spectroscope
  • Polarization
  • Exemplar Testing
  • Disperse Spectroscopy (EDS)


Since our first case 30 years ago, CED has been a powerful asset in thousands of investigations into the cause of accidents and product failures. Our success has been driven
