Laboratory analysis and expertise of precious metals

Your needs : to analyze and quantify the precious metal content in your products

Laboratory analysis and expertise of precious metals

As an industrialist in the Jewelry, Horology or Luxury sectors, determining the heavy metal content in your alloys is a crucial step of your manufacturing processes.

During the manufacturing process, precious metals such as Gold, Silver or Platinum are often mixed with less noble metals which will dictate the properties of the final product such as its solidity, reflectiveness, color…

To meet the requirements set by standards and scope statements, industrialists must ensure that the metallic alloys they use to produce their products comply with regulations surrounding the presence of precious metals and all other substances in their products.

To test the chemical composition of metallic alloys made from precious metals, modern techniques make it possible to perform quick, reliable and precise analyses without damaging the alloy itself. Support from a specialized laboratory will allow you to choose the best analytical method for your precious alloy.

Our solution : to provide you with techniques for analyzing precious metals, specific to your requests and to give you quick and reliable results

As an independent laboratory with a team made up of doctors and engineers, FILAB is able to assist you with your needs for precious metal analysis and determination.

To achieve this, FILAB laboratory is equipped with a cutting-edge analytical fleet and our team has the know-how to characterize all kinds of precious metals and to identify the different alloy grades. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM-FEG-EDX), ICP-AES and ICP-MS are techniques for these kinds of analyses. They make it possible to :

  • Evaluate the morphology of metallic alloys made of precious metals
  • Evaluate the chemical homogeneity between layers
  • Identify and quantify elements and determine precious metal contents

This modern technique makes it possible for your teams to perform nondestructive, precise and reliable analyses of precious metals with high added value. FILAB laboratory guarantees the reliability of its results, ensures a quick turnaround for requests and provides tailored support to its clients.
