Metal  Testing   Kit 

When you specify 316 stainless steel, and you pay for 316 stainless steel; how do you know you really have 316 stainless steel?  Mixing this desirable material with common 304 can result in a variety of nasty problems.  Koslow Scientific Company understands the  importance  to sort 316 from other stainless steels.  Supplier’s certifications and importer's promises are not enough.  Testing alloy content with undeniable, foolproof reliable kits from Koslow Scientific provides you with piece of mind.  Order the
 316 Stainless Steel ID Kit and test it yourself!   For over 40 years companies from pharmaceutical to aerospace have relied on Koslow kits.  No need for expensive XRF equipment.  No need to file off samples to mail to metallurgical testing labs. A chemical spot test is a diagnostic test that is performed by electro-spot method. Verify  your stainless steel 316  incoming and outgoing stock.  Use the quality testing solutions that have been ordered by engineers, fabricators, welders and scrap metal dealers.   Sensitive and interference-free chemical color tests detect the alloying components.  A color develops as a result of  a  chemical reaction and, generally, the intensity of the color can be used to estimate the amount of alloying component present.  Spot tests are easier, faster and cheaper than chemical analysis.  The results are not quantitative, but estimates of the concentrations can be made.  This is usually sufficient for alloy identification differentiation and verification. The 1542C includes a metal sample to be used as a testing reference.  Working with the 316 Stainless Steel ID Kit Calibration Standard will vividly demonstrate a positive result.  Ask us about the Electro-Spot 4, for special hard to reach testing areas.
Testing For Stainless "L" Grades  
In addition to the “Moly Test” the 1542C also contains a low carbon test which can detect SS316L from ordinary SS316 or SS304L from ordinary SS304.  This unique chemical spot test requires the steel sample to be briefly heated before applying the Electro-Spot Method.
