Material testing and identification

Do you need to confirm the identity of a suspect material or identify differences in similar materials? Is there a contamination issue in your manufacturing supply chain? Developing an automotive part or material that requires unbiased independent testing?

A client evidenced failure of rollers due to contamination in a manufacturing setting. Absolute labs was able to identify the source of the contamination utilizing microscopy, pyrolysis gas chromatography,  FTIR drifts, ICAPES, and gravimetric methods. The source of contamination was from the breakdown of a nylon part upstream. The nylon filler content was found to be greater than specified which was causing premature failure and collecting on the downstream rollers.

Absolute labs has identified many types of materials including paints, polymers, steel, metal, alloy, consumer products, chemicals, cleaners, adhesives, corrosion identification, corrosion resistance testing, and more.
