analytical services and technology
Our Analytical Services and Technology (AS&T) team is always solving. We provide a full range of services to meet your needs, from routine mechanical and analytical testing to microscopy and material characterization. We serve markets including plastics, composites, adhesives and much more.
Our people bring exceptional product knowledge, technical support and industry insights to help our customers amplify the efficacy, refine the usability, add to the allure, ensure the integrity, and improve the profitability of their products and applications.
The spectroscopy and microscopy group provides quantitative analysis of product formulations, identifications of unknown materials, compositional analysis of polymers and resins, and failure analysis of coatings and adhesives.
The materials characterizations group provides test data to measure the mechanical integrity of molded resin castings and composites as well as offering sophisticated thermal analysis and rheological testing. The group performs many ASTM test procedures applied to analyses of plastics, composites, adhesives and coatings. The data are used to qualify materials for customer specifications, to help design materials for optimum end-use performance, or to evaluate the effects of exposure environments on mechanical integrity.
The separations and wet chemistry group specializes in chromatographic techniques for trace analysis and classical wet chemical analysis.
