Our methodology has proven itself by trial to make the complex clear, provide superior insight and actionable information on which good decisions can be made, achieve results that lower costs and improve outcomes, and do this within resource limitations, budget restraints, and time deadlines.

For Insurers and Litigators

Our capabilities are top-notch.  We have broad, extensive, and highly successful experience in materials science (selection, performance, compatibility, corrosion, friction, wear, and lubrication), failure analysis, design, R&D, industrial practice and the Government's FARS, and project management.


Ask our clients what made them choose us and you’re likely to get many different answers. There’s some things they’ll all agree on though; we make the complex clear and deliver outstanding results in record time.

The Institute of Tribology and Coatings

The Institute of Tribology and Coatings is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established to provide industry, the Government, insurers, and litigators with a leading resource for friction, wear, lubrication, corrosion, failures and their underlying materials science.  Our work is accomplished through forming collaborative projects involving the client and leading researchers from our staff, academia, the National Labs, Government Labs, technical societies, and testing laboratories.

Tribology - the materials science of friction, wear, lubrication, corrosion, and failures.

ITC - establishing the future of tribology.
