Material characterization in a laboratory

Your needs: to call on a specialized laboratory to perform analysis and characterization services on your materials

Each type of material has its own characteristics and properties which will influence the efficiency of the finished product. The criteria when choosing a material can be based on: its chemical nature, its composition, its morphology (PSD, crystallinity…), the state of its surface, etc.

The four main categories of materials are:

    • Metallic materials
    • Organic materials and polymers
    • Minerals and ceramics
    • Composite materials

Throughout their lifecycle these materials will face numerous outside constraints which in some cases can have an effect on their behavior or their stability. From the manufacturing process to the use of the final product it is essential to ensure that the materials used are in compliance with regulations and to monitor the risks of defects (fissures, ruptures, corrosion…) by using the following methods:

  • Using materials compatible with the end product
  • Studying the material’s behavior in various situations
  • Evaluating the quality and overall safety of the material
  • Conforming with any regulations relating to the material

With the support and the experience of a specialized laboratory you will be able to both optimize your manufacturing process with better suited materials and analyze the causes and solutions of any failures that may appear in your materials or finished products.
