Materials Testing & Analysis

How do you know which materials testing approach to take?  How do you choose the appropriate materials characterization techniques? How do you interpret analytical testing data to provide actionable results? EAG’s materials scientists and engineers know how to provide the essential information to improve product performance and develop new materials/processes.

When it comes to understanding the physical structure, chemical properties and composition of materials, no scientific services company offers the breadth of experience, diversity of analytical techniques of technical ingenuity of EAG. From polymers to composites, thin films to superalloys—we know how to leverage materials sciences to gain a competitive edge. At EAG Laboratories, we don’t just perform testing, we drive commercial success—through thoughtfully designed investigations, technically superior analyses and expert interpretation of data.

ADVANCED MICROSCOPY
Imaging techniques to investigate sample microstructure, morphology, particle size, grain size, particle coatings and defects

BIOMEDICAL ANALYSIS
Analytical and materials testing services supporting the convergence of technology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and diagnostics

CHEMICAL ANALYSIS
Understanding product chemistry by applying multiple instrumental analytical approaches

CHEMICAL COMPATIBILITY
Select “first time right” sustainable materials in product design and development based on risk assessment, perform materials and product testing, and find the root cause of failure.

COMPOSITIONAL ANALYSIS & MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION
To determine the components of an unknown, confirm the identity of a suspect material or identify difference between similar materials

CONTAMINANT IDENTIFICATION
From determination of a chemical family to complete structure elucidation, to determine the source and measure the effectiveness of contaminant removal and cleaning

CORROSION TESTING
Critical insights throughout a product lifecycle, from materials selection early in the design process to quality control and failure analysis.

DEFORMULATION
Also known as reverse engineering, the separation, identification and quantitation of ingredients in a formulation

EXTRACTABLES & LEACHABLES
Identification of chemicals released or migrated from a product under normal or stressed conditions

FAILURE ANALYSIS
To investigate fractures, corrosion, discoloration, wear, adhesion/bonding and stress-related issues

GLASS ANALYSIS
Glass is a crucial element in numerous applications. We have unmatched expertise in glass analysis, research and investigation.

MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION
Information about material properties include interface sharpness, depth distribution of a particular element, morphology, crystal structure and component identification

METALLURGICAL ANALYSIS
Analytical investigations of fractures, fatigue, corrosion, oxidation, embrittlement, plating, welding, brazing and soldering problems in metallic and metal containing products

POLYMER CHEMISTRY
Plastic and polymeric material testing for physical and mechanical properties, thermal properties and chemical composition analysis

SURFACE ANALYSIS
Understanding the composition, cleanliness, contaminant levels and roughness of surfaces to investigate issues with adhesion, corrosion and surface chemistry

TRACE ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS
Determination of the chemical purity of materials to identify and eliminate contamination in advanced materials, typically categorized as mass fractions from 1 – 100 pm
