Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) will be showcasing its corrosion testing capabilities, along with material testing, nondestructive testing and calibration services at the NACE Corrosion Expo 2014. The Expo is set to run from March 9th to the 14th at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX. LTI will be exhibiting in Booth #1528 with solutions for determining corrosion susceptibility, mechanical properties, material composition, defects and discontinuities and conformance to industry standards. In addition, the full-service laboratory provides failure analysis, specimen machining, dimensional inspection and calibration services.
Annually, the NACE event covers the field of corrosion technology, control and solutions with an Expo and Conference. The NACE Corrosion 2014 Expo will feature over 380 exhibitors on the show floor and is expected to draw more than 6,000 attendees from over 70 countries. Running concurrently with the Expo is the NACE Corrosion Conference which offers 1,000 hours of lectures, forums and meetings.
