Laboratory analysis and expertise of copper and copper alloys

Chemical analysis of copper alloys: one of FILAB’s many skills

As the first metal ever worked by humans, copper is now used for its resistance and thermal conductivity and can be found in many fields such as: BTP, telecommunications, tools, transportation…

For over 20 years, FILAB laboratory has been providing metallurgical analyses of copper samples to hundreds of clients, some of which were provided under ISO 17025 accreditation.

FILAB laboratory provides its experience and its specific skills to inspect the quality of your copper and copper alloy (brass, bronze…) samples:

  • Chemical composition analysis and grade inspection of copper alloys
  • Chemical analysis of Brass
  • Chemical analysis of Bronze
  • Analyses in accordance with relevant standards:
    • ISO 13898-1
    • EN 723
    • EN 1982
    • CIO 196
    • EN 12164

Going even further: our expertise of cobalt alloys
