Know What You’ve Got: Inside and Out
Laboratory Testing Inc. offers analytical testing expertise in material characterization, trace metal analysis and failure analysis research. Our chemical analysis lab can provide support during material selection or verification by testing for elemental make-up and impurities, determining composition and identifying materials.
A wide-array of instrumental chemistry and wet chemistry methods are utilized to provide customers with information, answers and qualitative and quantitative results. LTI chemists have the experience to perform chemical analysis services on a broad range of materials and welcome orders with limited sample weight or with specialized requirements.
- Powdered metals
The extensive instrumental chemistry capabilities at LTI include spectroscopy analysis such as ICP testing with 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. Our chemical analysis lab can also apply many other analytical testing methods to get the exact information you need about your materials.
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.
Chemical analysis services are performed at Laboratory Testing to meet your specific requirements:
- 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
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 and testing to help assure compliance with RoHS and documents all results in a Certified Test Report.
