Reverse Engineering in Laboratory

You want to determine the composition of a product by the reverse engineering method.

Reverse engineering, also called deformation or reverse engineering, is a method to determine the chemical composition of a complex mixture using various chemical analyses.

In addition to providing a better understanding of a material, reverse engineering allows for a better understanding of structural issues but also its defective quality. Thus, the objective of reverse engineering can, among other things, be to improve the performance of a material and/or to better target a new supplier.

This application concerns different types of products, formulas and materials: paints, metals, alloys, varnishes, plastics, cosmetics, aqueous formulations, composites…

The method of successful reverse engineering lies in a good knowledge of the targeted application and the implementation of rigorous analytical methods to characterize the composition of organic and mineral fractions. 

FILAB supports you in your reverse engineering efforts

Reverse engineering can be used to meet various needs such as:

Our services

  • Analyze and determine the composition of an unknown mixture

  • Check compliance with a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) or a technical data sheet

  • Compare the composition of several products (double-sourcing or multi-sourcing)

  • Analyze and identify a pollution or an impurity

Par ailleurs, l’ingénierie inverse implique un ensemble de techniques diversifiées, parfois très pointues notamment: 

our resources

  • Gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GCMS)

  • The DRX

  • La microscopie Infra Rouge (IRTF)

  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR analysis)

  • Liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LCMS)

  • ICP-MS

Thanks to its experience and its state-of-the-art analytical facilities (2100m² analytical laboratory), FILAB laboratory can assist you with your most complex reverse engineering analysis needs, whatever the nature of your sample: aqueous solution, powder, polymer, ceramic, metallic material…
