Methanol Testing and Analysis

Methanol chemical analysis to ASTM and IMPCA quality and purity specifications and standards.

Intertek tests methanol and solutions containing methanol for purity, contamination, composition and other quality and chemical parameters. Methanol bulk cargo inspection and testing are available throughout the world. Methanol laboratory analysis reaches trace and ultra-trace levels. ASTM tests and IMPCA* specifications are followed along with other industry standards.
