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 or 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 are used to investigate sample microstructure, morphology, particle size, grain size, particle coatings and defects.

BIOMEDICAL ANALYSIS
We provide analytical and materials testing services to support the convergence of technology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and diagnostics.

CHEMICAL ANALYSIS
EAG can help you better understand your product’s 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
We can determine the components of an unknown substance, confirm the identity of a suspect material or identify difference between similar materials.

CONTAMINANT IDENTIFICATION
EAG can help with determination of a chemical family to complete structure elucidation. We can determine the source and measure the effectiveness of contaminant removal and cleaning.

CORROSION TESTING
We can provide critical insights throughout a product life cycle, from materials selection early in the design process to quality control and failure analysis.

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

EXTRACTABLES & LEACHABLES
We can help identify chemicals released or migrated from a product under normal or stressed conditions.

FAILURE ANALYSIS
EAG can help 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
EAG provides services for analytical investigations of fractures, fatigue, corrosion, oxidation, embrittlement, plating, welding, brazing and soldering problems in metallic and metal containing products.

POLYMER CHEMISTRY
We provide plastic and polymeric material testing for physical and mechanical properties, thermal properties and chemical composition analysis.

SURFACE ANALYSIS
EAG can help understand the composition, cleanliness, contaminant levels and roughness of surfaces to investigate issues with adhesion, corrosion and surface chemistry.

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