  1. Secat is a metallurgical research laboratory specializing in aluminum product and process technologies with ISO 17025:2005 certification. Secat has technical and marketing capabilities to serve various aluminum product sectors including: automotive, marine, aerospace, packaging, building & construction, electrical, and recycling. Secat assists companies with materials testing, failure analysis, alloy development, and the enhancement of processes and properties related to casting, forging, extrusion, rolling of plate sheet & foil, powder metallurgy, and foams & composites. SECATPROVIDING ALUMInUM ANSWERS

  2. Sheet product selection and development for specific applications: • Can and Can Lids • Common Alloys • Aerospace Applications • Automotive Applications • Foils for Packaging and Capacitor Applications • Sheet manufacturing process development and improvement • Microstructural evaluation and material testing of sheet products, including texture, fatigue, etc. • Formability evaluation and forming process modeling, including forming limit diagrams Plate, Sheet & Foil Technology

  3. Extruded product selection and development for specific applications • Extrusion process development • Microstructural evaluation and material testing of extruded products, including texture, failure analysis, etc. • Pilot scale extrusion capabilities • Extrusion billet casthouse improvement and quality assessment: • Evaluation of Billet Microstructure • Metal Quality • Energy Audits Billet/Extrusion Technology

  4. Molten metal quality assessment and improvement, including Prefil and Alscan Casthouse safety assessment DC ingot casting modeling using ProCast Ingot microstructural evaluation Secat visited a customer facility with our mobile laboratory to help them identify existing inclusion and gas levels in metal using the PrefilFootprinter® and Alscan®, and help to determine how those levels correlate with the rejections received from field. Casting Technology

  5. Microstructural evaluation, including optical, SEM, TEM, etc. Material testing and evaluation Failure analysis Metal quality assessment Formability evaluation and forming process modeling, including forming limit diagrams An aluminum producer needed assistance in determining the cause of fractures that occurred during fatigue testing. Secat analyzed the fracture surface and identified the fracture origin, cause of the fracture, and suggested remedial actions. Materials Testing & Failure Analysis

  6. Market surveys prior to introduction of new products Substitution of aluminum for other metals Finite Element Analysis (FEA) studies Alloy selection Manufacturing mode such as casting, extrusion, fabrication, etc. New alloy development Evaluation of new and competing process technologies Melting technologies Molten metal stirring Dross removal and fluxing Reverse engineering of parts to determine alloy and temper or production method Product Applications
