Materials testing and failure analysis laboratory servics by JFP Technical Services
Independent Failure Analysis, Materials Testing, ROHS, X-Ray Fluorescence




- JFP Technical Services provide expert failure analysis services to determine the cause of the failure and can recommend corrective actions to reduce the chance of future failures!

- As an independent laboratory, we can provide evaluation for first piece and random sample inspection and testing.

- JFP Technical Services provides expert services for special projects ranging from product development and forensic investigations to manufacturing engineering.


- JFP Technical Services can resolve the possible causes of the breakdown such as shock, fatigue, corrosion, stress corrosion, etc.

- We can recommend a better material or fabrication method.

- We can also set the parameters for programmed maintenance to ensure that downtime is a function of planning and not accident.

JFP Technical Services


JFP Technical Services was founded by James Farroni, providing over 30 years experience in materials testing and failure analysis requiring meticulous documentation in such industries as medical products and electronic components. To this is added a great facility for fixturing, thus replicating industrial processes in the lab for precise measurement and characterization.

John Paciorek became a partner in the company, bringing his extensive background in steel operations - from billet casting to hot rolling to tube, pipe and roll forming. Together they have served companies base in Ohio and though out the United States. John Paciorek is now semi-retired, working on selected projects, including design and specification reviews for blueprint requirements in conformity with the standards for our Professional Engineer review and seal.

The core business of JFP Technical Services has been in failure analysis - providing consulting and testing for process and product development, and expert forensic testimony for arbitration, litigation and negotiated settlements. Their testing and reports can help prevent future process breakdowns and product recalls, preserving their client's reputation and saving them money. It's position as a third party laboratory dedicated to scientifically repeatable results and withstanding cross examination from informed legal counsel helps ensure fair rulings and judgments.

While significantly focused on failure analysis, JFP Technical Services engages in the full gamut of laboratory base services. They perform standard destructive mechanical testing; like hardness, microhardness, tensile, compression and ductility testing. Using photomicroscopy, they provide microstructure analysis of both homogeneous materials and for heterogeneous applications like plating and coating cross-section. There have been advances on several fronts in instrumentation, including SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) for imaging and EDX (Energy Dispersive X-Ray) elemental analysis.

Recently, they have added portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) for RoHS testing RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliance screening tests, primarily to determine the presence of heavy metals and halogens and provide an excellent characterization of alloys and selected polymers.

Expertise Spotlight:




JFP Technical Services offers fast, reliable and cost-effective RoHS compliance screening tests, primarily to determine the presence of heavy metals such as Mercury (Hg) and Lead (Pb), but also sensitive to the presence of potentially toxic elements like Cadmium (Cd) and Chromium (Cr).We can also screen Bromine (Br) in plastics, as polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). These usually show up in brominated flame retardants used in printed circuit boards, connectors, plastic covers, and cables to help determine whether the material is an approved compound like Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA, TBBP-A) or a prohibited compound like Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD, HBCDD).




  X-Ray Fluorescence:




X-Ray Fluorescence screening is one of the fastest and least expensive steps towards RoHS compliance. Many products perfectly comply with RoHS standards, but need RoHS testing documentation for export. We readily test for Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Lead (Pb), Chromium (Cr) and Bromine (Br) in your products, so as to verify compliance to the new European Union (EU) requirements.
