Chemical and Physical Materials Analyses

Materials testing through:

  • Spark optical emission spectroscopy (spark OES)
  • Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS)
  • Time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS)
  • Carrier gas hot extraction of the elements C, S, H, N, ODifferential scanning calorimetry (DSC)
  • Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)
  • Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA)
  • Determination of density
  • Residual stress measurements by x-ray
  • Photometric analyses
  • Coating inspections
  • Compression set

These tests are carried out on metals/alloys, synthetic materials/organic compounds, ceramics, salts, liquids and laminates.
