Intertek Announces the Availability of a New White Paper: Forensic Failure Analysis—The CSI of Testing

New publication outlines how failure analysis can be used to uncover product issues or provide solutions to a problem.

Chicago, IL, August 24, 2009 --( Intertek (LSE: ITRK), a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, has announced the availability of a new white paper titled: Forensic Failure Analysis—The CSI of Testing.

Much like the investigative techniques seen on television, Failure Analysis (FA) can be used to uncover product issues or provide solutions to a problem. This white paper provides a rare opportunity to see an actual FA test report and the types of information these reports typically contain.

Inside this paper you'll learn about a unique failure/metallurgical analysis project on a 100+ year old gun to solve the mystery of the missing serial number. Intertek's Chief Metallurgist was able to recover the serial number using a combination of FA & metallurgy techniques to prove the gun was, indeed, an antique.

Everyone who downloads the white paper by August 28th, 2009 is automatically registered to win a free 4-step Failure Analysis from Intertek (a $2500 value).
