Metal oxides : analysis and characterization in a laboratory

Are you looking to characterize metal oxides on the surface or within a material?

Metal oxides are produced when one or more constituents react with oxygen in the air. Oxides can appear during different stages of the metalworking process. Certain alloy families (magnesium, aluminum, titanium) are more reactive with oxygen and are easily oxidized. Working in a vacuum or under an inert atmosphere makes it possible to limit the formation of oxides which degrade a part’s mechanical resistance.

The detection of oxides is quite specific, the analysis of metal oxides by a specialized laboratory is therefore crucial for industrialists working with metals.

Metal oxide analysis : one of FILAB’s many skills

FILAB, with a team of trained experts in metal oxide analysis (titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, tin dioxide…), is able to provide its analytical services all the way from the designing process to the process of putting a new product on the market.

Relying on extensive experience and a cutting-edge analytical fleet, FILAB laboratory is able to use a wide range of tools specific to the field of metallurgy allowing for metal oxide analysis.

  • X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis of metal oxides
  • Assessment of metallic grades : ferrous and non-ferrous, stainless alloys (EN 10088-1, EN 10088-2, EN 10088-3) steel, titanium, copper, lead, nickel, zinc, aluminum, tin, cobalt…)
  • Nanomaterial characterization of metal oxides (titanium dioxide, zinc oxide…) in cosmetic products
  • Custom chemical analyses by ICP, C,H,O,N,S Elemental Analyzers
