A test authorization form with complete billing information must accompany samples submitted to IOM.
Send us an email to notify us that a sample is on the way. Samples should be sent to:
Institute of Materials, Inc.
4800 James Savage Rd.
Midland, MI 48642
At present, IOM only accepts new engine oil samples for analysis. If the sample is in an unlabelled container, such as a sample drawn from a bulk storage tank, viscosity grade should be identified on the sample bottle for testing purposes. Service category information is helpful. Brand name of the sample is optional.
Additional discounts are available for six or more samples submitted at the same time for the same test package. Standard turn-around time for private test results is 12 to 15 business days from the time the sample is received. A report will be emailed to the test requestor once testing is complete.
An optional sample kit is available for $10 which includes return shipping and handling.
