Laboratory for the analysis of anti-UV additives

Are you looking for a laboratory offering analysis and expertise to quantify the anti-UV additives in your products?

An ultraviolet additive is a chemical compound that blocks or absorbs ultraviolet radiation, thus increasing the life of the product.

Anti-uv additives are often used in cosmetics, plastics, or optics.  

Thanks to the complementarity of our analytical tools and our dual expertise in chemistry and materials, the FILAB laboratory offers several types of services related to the analysis and control of anti-UV additives, according to reliable analysis methods:
