The following samples can be analyzed in the lab:
▪️Polymers / Plastics
Our chemical analysis services, both routine and investigative, can help with material selection, material verification, failure analysis study, and more.
Chemical Composition Analysis
Our chemical composition analysis employs a variety of techniques to determine chemical quality, identity, composition, and impurities
Chemical Trace Analysis
The examination of chemical traces is frequently difficult but even for complicated sample matrices, our trace chemical testing services cover trace metals analysis and organic compound detection. Analysing, detecting, and identifying residues are all part of chemical residue testing, and are used to solve industry challenges. We also conduct Extractable and Leachable (E&L) investigations to determine the amount of potentially leachable contaminants.
Detecting Contamination and Analysis
Chemical contamination necessitates a quick response. To promptly identify and resolve contamination issues, Intertek employs modern laboratory instrumentation.
Materials Testing and Analysis
We provide specialist testing for a wide range of materials, including polymers, plastics, metals, ceramics, and paper.
Chemical Analysis of Metal Alloys
To identify and quantify the elemental makeup of a metal alloy, our experts use a variety of approaches ranging from semi-quantitative to fully quantitative procedures. For manufacturing quality control, reverse engineering, and failure investigations, we use chemical analysis of metals
Chemicals Regulatory Compliance Testing
To guarantee that products comply with standards such as REACH and other global chemical notification requirements, as well as ROHS, a comprehensive range of chemical analysis capabilities are available.
Chemical Testing Applications and Problem Solving
▪️Deformulation of Products – provide particular information on product ingredients.
▪️Determine the source of discolorations, stains, and corrosion deposits using residue analysis.
