Excellent & Quality Testing

Chemical
Analysis

Chemical analysis determines the composition of samples and is valuable in identifying and verifying materials, detecting the presence of elements and identifying unknown substance.

Product Testing Mastery
  • Qualitative and Quantitative Instrumental analysis .
  • Classical Wet chemistry .
  • Analyzing metals, powdered metals, ores, ferroalloys, composites, ceramics and polymers .
  • Supporting customers with advanced analysis techniques, for their customized products or orders with limited sample quantity.
  • Trace analysis - Performed using spectrometers with detection limits in the parts per million range for many metals.
  • Gravimetric, volumetric, colorimetric and potentiometric procedures are followed for analysis.
  • Material Tests- Chemical analysis of a wide range of Materials used for the construction and allied industry Water | Wastewater | Groundwater/seawater | Food products | Oil | Cosmetics Cleaning materials | Mineral ores | Deposits | Construction materials | Agricultural and horticultural materials | Detection of pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and other organic pollutants.
  • Determination of nutritional values and toxicity of food and beverages.
  • Halogen Acid Determination.
  • UV and Visible Spectrophotometer.
  • Environmental Tests- Includes field sampling (in accordance with the local municipality requirements and international methods) and testing at the laboratory and furnishing the test reports - Environmental samples ( sludge, sediments, etc ).
  • Optical Emissions Spectroscopic Techniques.
  • Limiting Oxygen Index.
  • Corrosion Analysis — To determine the impact of environmental conditions on their materials and products -Corrosion testing, Salt Spray/Salt Fog, Passivation Testing and Humidity Testing.
