A History of Expertise and Innovation
RJ Lee Group has assessed environmental issues since the early 1980s when our Energy Technology Consultants (ETC) pioneered the recognition of specific air quality patterns. We developed a cutting-edge technique for identifying, measuring, and characterizing particles in the air using computer-controlled scanning electron microscopy (CCSEM).
RJ Lee Group has worked with clients in various industries, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to assess and provide solutions for environmental factors that could affect our health. Our services have grown over the years, from setting controls for unbound nanoparticles (UNP) to designing and building test chambers to simulate specific environmental conditions.
Today we offer our expertise for our clients’ environmental and compliance concerns and perform rigorous assessment and management of potential environmental risks.
Corrosion costs global economies trillions of dollars per annum and impacts countless aspects of industry and civil infrastructure. From bridges to pipes to medical devices to consumer products, a complex interplay of material chemistry, microstructure, surface condition, environmental factors, and operating conditions dictates corrosion’s onset and aggressiveness.
Our materials scientists, armed with expertise and a methodical approach, unravel the causes and mechanisms of corrosion, particularly those that impact the lifespan of critical infrastructure, industrial equipment, or consumer products. While corrosion may be unavoidable in some circumstances, RJ Lee Group is your ally in efforts to tackle the most difficult corrosion challenges. We help industries diagnose corrosion causes and remedies, assess remaining product life and inform repair or replace decisions.
RJ Lee Group's material corrosion experts perform customized corrosion testing, with the ability to simulate environments that mirror your specific service conditions. Our clients rely on these results to develop new products, improve existing ones, meet regulatory requirements, or perform forensic investigations. Contact RJ Lee Group today for assistance with asset stewardship, product performance, or root cause industrial forensic analysis.
Discovering corrosion mechanisms that affect a product's lifespan; conducting simulated environment tests for selecting materials or assessing remaining longevity.
Product Support & Materials Research & Development
RJ Lee Group’s experts work independently or with the client’s team to investigate new materials and new coatings to combat corrosion. From design concept to consumer use, we assist with selecting materials, developing specifications, and conducting testing to ensure products meet required standards.
Accelerated and service life testing is performed to assess how a product will operate, and the length of time it will operate within its intended environment. Wear testing and root cause
failure analysis are performed postmortem.
Senior Materials Scientist
Keith has over 30 years of experience and is currently a Senior Materials Scientist with supervisory and technical responsibilities focused on industrial problem solving, forensic materials investigations and failure analysis for commercial, legal and governmental clientele. He has conducted materials evaluations on all classes of materials. He has also published and presented on materials processing and failure analysis in the areas of metallic alloy systems, concrete and structural materials, nanotechnology, CO2 sequestration, particle and residual materials analysis, corrosion, wear and applications of various materials characterization techniques.
How AeroTech Secured Its Future
When AeroTech Industries faced recurring defects in a crucial aircraft component, they were at risk of losing multi-million dollar contracts and jeopardizing the jobs of hundreds of employees. They enlisted the help of RJ Lee Group, who quickly deployed a team of technical experts. Through state-of-the-art forensic analysis, RJ Lee Group identified and rectified the root cause—a flaw in the casting process—eliminating the defect and preserving AeroTech's contracts.
