Laboratory analysis of surface condition

You want to analyze the surface condition of your materials?

What is the surface finish of a material?

The surface of a material is considered as the skin of a material and it is also where many interactions with its environment take place.

Of its specific characteristics, the surface condition plays a preponderant role and conditions the performance of the material. 

Wear, corrosion, adhesion, … result from the physico-chemical properties of surfaces and interfaces and can impact its reliability, stability as well as its long and short term solidity.

Thus, it is essential to analyze the surface condition of your products in order to control and improve the quality of your materials’ performance.

The support of a specialized laboratory will provide you with the expertise and analysis tools necessary to optimize your performance.
