    Abstract

    MARKING OF METALLOGRAPHIC/MATERIALOGRAPHIC SPECIMENS IS very important because a proper identification of the specimen is the only thing that ensures that the result of the analysis is correctly used. This is true for both quality control and research, and it can be said that the specimen must be marked in all cases where ametallographic/materialographic analysis should be reported.
