Deformation, study of the chemical composition of formulas or materials

What is reverse engineering?

Reverse engineering of a commercial product, often made up of a complex mixture, involves determining the nature and quantities of the raw materials present in the formulation, by means of various chemical analyses.

This application can be applied to different types of products, formulas and materials: paints, plastics (polymers), composites, metals and metal alloys, varnishes...

In what context do industries need to check the chemical composition of products or materials?

Analyser et déterminer
Analyze and determine the composition of an unknown mixture
Check compliance with a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) or technical data sheet
Compare the composition of several products (double-sourcing or multi-sourcing)
Analyse des produits
Analysis of competing products
Analyser et identifier
Analyse and identify pollution or impurities
The success of deformation depends on a thorough understanding of the target application and the use of rigorous analytical methods to characterize the chemical composition of the organic and inorganic fractions.
