As you know, for a material to be tough, it must possess a balance of both strength and ductility. A material’s ability to absorb energy and plastically deform without fracturing is extremely important for the durability of your application. Different NDT tests can help you determine under what conditions your valve seat insert will fracture or fail. We also employ quality assurance tests, like the Radial Crush Toughness Test, that enable you to confidently make use of LEJ’s VSI’s without thinking twice.
