Basic & Industrial Chemicals

Basic and industrial chemical services help you meet quality, manufacturing and regulatory standards across the supply chain and to reach optimal efficiency.

Basic and industrial chemicals are produced in huge quantities and are critical ingredients for products used by both industry and the general consumer. They include chemical raw materials derived from oil (petrochemicals), basic inorganics and intermediates for chemical processes.

Understanding the manufacturing processes and the chemical composition of these basic chemicals is important in order to meet cost reduction targets and to comply with increasingly stringent environmental and safety regulations.

Our scientists test and analyse basic and industrial chemicals which are used in a range of industries such as specialty chemicals, polymers, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, detergents, solvents, textiles and many others. Tests include chemical composition and physical properties, conducted to international standards including ASTM and ISO, and in-house methods assist your quality control testing, trace analysis and contamination issues.

We also provide comprehensive consulting support for developing and implementing worldwide regulatory compliance strategies for new and existing products. Our services relate to new product introductions, data development, as well as validation of compliance of existing products with local and global regulations.

Intertek’s support for the manufacturing process includes safety services for chemical powders and scientific consultancy for implementation and monitoring of on-line and at-line measurements. We also know that assuring the longevity and safety of your materials and plant infrastructure are key priorities. At Intertek, our corrosion and asset integrity experts can provide testing and consultancy in the areas of chemical treatments, corrosion control and production chemistry to promote safety and lower the risk of materials failure.

To help navigate the complex supply chains and distribution routes, our cargo inspection and supply chain auditing services can safeguard your products and minimise risk.

Wherever you are positioned in the supply chain, our network of laboratories, capabilities and expertise can support your research or manufacturing wherever you are located, helping your basic and industrial chemical products and processes reach optimal quality and efficiency.
