Our materials analysis services evaluate material quality and provide the necessary insight to improve performance & resolve failure or contamination issues
Materials analysis is necessary to characterise and evaluate the quality and performance of materials. It supports innovation in industries such as engineering and manufacturing. Materials such as polymers, plastics, composites, metals, alloys, ceramics, paper and board have diverse properties that impact performance, therefore an understanding of your material’s properties is essential to determine if your material or product is suitable for its intended use or to rectify a failure.
Our materials analysis knowledge and experience spans a wide range of industry sectors including aerospace, automotive, nuclear, chemicals, oil and gas, polymers and plastics, packaging, adhesives, medical devices, textiles and apparel, building materials, electronics, composites, consumer products and nanomaterials.
With a global network of laboratories and over 1,000 industry experts, we can support customers around the world and easily arrange shipment of your samples for prompt testing and consulting.
Intertek experts use a wide range of materials analysis techniques and our laboratories work to ISO 17025 accreditation and test to a variety of standards, including ASTM, SAE, UL, IEC, ISO, BIFMA, EN, MIL and OEM-specific.
By partnering with Intertek, we can bring you a support team backed by many years of industry knowledge to help you ensure the quality of your materials and products, and to optimise performance while avoiding or resolving failure issues.
