Know What You’ve Got: Inside and Out
Laboratory Testing Inc. offers chemical analysis expertise for determining material composition including element analysis, impurity identification, trace analysis and material identification. Our chemical analysis lab can provide support during material selection, material verification or failure analysis research.
A wide-array of instrumental and wet chemistry methods are utilized to provide customers with information, answers and qualitative and quantitative results. Our chemical analysis lab has the experience to analyze a broad range of materials:
- Powdered metals
Chemical Analysis Services
Laboratory Testing services are performed to meet your specific requirements. LTI chemists welcome the opportunity to process orders with limited sample weight or with specialized requirements. Our chemical analysis lab can apply many other analytical testing methods to get the exact information you need about your materials:
- ICP Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES)
- ICP Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS)
- Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (EDS/EDX)
- Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (AES)
- Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
- Carbon/Sulfur/Nitrogen/Oxygen/Hydrogen Determination
- Positive Material Identification (PMI)
- Sieve Analysis
- Plating Identification
- Density, Porosity & Oil Content
- Classical Wet Chemistry
ICP spectroscopy capabilities offer detection limits in the “parts per million” range for reliable trace metal analysis. Our SEM/EDS system with magnification to 300,000X allows us to detect and measure elements on or below the surface of samples, making it particularly helpful in the chemical analysis of small areas of interest or tiny particles. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is the process used to analyze many organic materials, including plastics and other polymers. FTIR can provide both qualitative and quantitative information by identifying the types and amounts of materials, as well as information about chemical bonds and the molecular structure of the material.
Additional Chemical Analysis Services
Our chemical analysis lab also performs corrosion testing on metals to determine susceptibility to corrosion and the impact of various environmental conditions.
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive or RoHS restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic components or equipment sold or used in the European Union. Laboratory Testing provides the necessary chemical analysis services to help assure compliance with RoHS and documents all results in a Certified Test Report.
