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.
Imaging techniques to investigate sample microstructure, morphology, particle size, grain size, particle coatings and defects
Analytical and materials testing services supporting the convergence of technology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and diagnostics
Understanding product chemistry by applying multiple instrumental analytical approaches
COMPOSITIONAL ANALYSIS & MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION
To determine the components of an unknown, confirm the identity of a suspect material or identify difference between similar materials
From determination of a chemical family to complete structure elucidation, to determine the source and measure the effectiveness of contaminant removal and cleaning
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
To investigate fractures, corrosion, discoloration, wear, adhesion/bonding and stress-related issues
Information about material properties include interface sharpness, depth distribution of a particular element, morphology, crystal structure and component identification
Analytical investigations of fractures, fatigue, corrosion, oxidation, embrittlement, plating, welding, brazing and soldering problems in metallic and metal containing products
Plastic and polymeric material testing for physical and mechanical properties, thermal properties and chemical composition 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
