Chemical Analysis and Product Finish Testing
In order to establish that metals have the desired mechanical, corrosion and physical properties for specific purposes, chemical analysis is significantly important. Our analytical staff are highly experienced in providing a wide range of chemical analysis tests for different metals, as well as painted/plated finish salt spray and humidity testing to determine how different materials and products will react to weathering.
