Simon Forensic, LLC

is an independent materials testing laboratory. 

We practice industrial forensics.

 Our focus is on metal testing, metallurgy, coatings, corrosion, aggregates, polymers, carbon fiber and the physical chemistry of failure analysis. We are happy to serve the Puget Sound area and beyond!

Our testing provides personalized, non-biased, third party verification of materials and can provide answers to solve issues such as product failure, quality control, foreign material identification and metal alloy identification.

When you have a failed part of a structure or machine, we make it our job to tell you why. 

The primary instrument at Simon Forensic is a Scanning Electron Microscope with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (SEM-EDS). With this state-of-the-art instrument Omar can analyze a broad spectrum of material, and identify chemical properties of your material. Please see Electron Microscopy for more information. 

Forensic investigation + chemical analysis

= Forensic Chemistry.

Since 1999 Omar Simon has built years of experience and an ever-growing collection of specialized instruments to establish facts of interest. These facts are used to determine answers for:

We can identify ANY type of metal. Our metal testing department can determine any element on the periodic table to identify your metal alloy. Our unique combination of instrumentation provides a broad testing capability. See Metal Testing and ID for more information.
