Deformation of composite in laboratory

You wish to perform a deformation on your composites?

What is a deformation?

Deformulation is an analytical decomposition process that aims to separate, identify and quantify the substances that make up a formulation. To do this, deformulation uses many different chemical analysis.

The deformulation applies to any type of industrial sector and is used in various contexts: 

  • Analyze and determine the composition of an unknown mixture/material,
  • Compare the composition of several products (double or multi-sourcing),
  • Checking the conformity of a product to a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) or a technical data sheet,
  • Understanding an unusual phenomenon, etc.

What is a composite?

A composite is a material that consists of at least two materials of different nature.

When two or more materials are combined, a material is obtained which has all the properties of the materials used for its manufacture and is thus a more efficient material. 

A composite is made up of :

-A framework called reinforcement that ensures the mechanical strength of the composite material for example: fiberglass, carbon, hemp, linen.

 – a matrix which protects the reinforcement

There is today a large number of composite materials, in particular fiberglass, reinforced concrete, plywood…

FILAB supports you in the deformation analysis of your composites.

Thanks to its experience and its state-of-the-art analytical equipment (2100m² analysis laboratory), FILAB laboratory offers you its services for the analysis of deformation of composite materials.

go further

  • Accompaniment from the design to the evolution of your products based on composite materials

  • Study of failures on composite materials: aging, breakage, non-conformity, appearance of deposits or particles ...

For this, our laboratory has a Scanning Electron Microscope, coupled with an EDX probe, and numerous GC-MS and Py-GCMS equipments allowing to study the composition of the composite (carbon fiber, glass fiber, ceramic…).

In addition, thermogravimetric analysis by ATG coupled with FTIR will highlight the physico-chemical specificities of the composite material according to the temperatures.

The positive aspects of FILAB

  • A highly qualified team

  • Responsiveness in responding to and processing requests

  • A complete analytical park of 2100m²

  • Tailor-made support
