Product and materials may fail to perform properly and/or malfunction unexpectedly. When this occurs, there is often an impact on manufacturing time, company finances, or the end user’s experience. Failure analysis can determine the root cause of these issues. Once the root cause is known, corrective action can be taken to eliminate the problem. Some of the most commonly encountered issues are coating failure, corrosion, glass delamination, polymer failure, metallurgical failure, and contamination.
