About FRONTICS AMERICA

FRONTICS AMERICA Inc. opened its first independent office outside of Korea in January 2012. FRONTICS Inc. (Headquarter) was established in September 2000 derived from Korean government-designated “Micro-materials & Reliability laboratory” under the research institute of Advanced Materials at Seoul National University. We specialize in material property assessment equipment with fast and precise solutions. Also, analyzing materials, mechanical property assessments, failure analysis, life predictions for materials, and industrial structures.

FRONTICS AMERICA focuses on covering a wide range of industries such as:
• Oil & Gas
• Energy, Power Plants
• Gas Pipeline
• Inspection
• Steel structure
• Shipbuilding

Our Product covers measurement of mechanical properties that include:
• Tensile Strength
• Yield Strength
• Residual Stress
• Fracture toughness

With our global leading technology, we have developed an automated indentation system for the first time in Korea to assess reliability and safety of all products such as materials, parts, systems, and industrial structures. Also, we are building domestic and international human network by delivering products to leading research institutes like KRISS, KEPRI, RIST, and TWI.  AIS Series delivers IIT testing method which is non-destructive, economical, and has an efficient measuring method to provide reliable solutions by evaluating a wide range of scopes from local areas of nano scale to properties of macro scale of existing industrial facilities.

Corporate Identity

We aim to lead global market with new technology; our word mark reflects this philosophy to feature initiative and simplicity. The image of company word mark represents growth and expansion and it shows our firm objective to grow as a competitive business in our filed.
