Surface Analysis

our surface analysis expertise can drive insight into microscopic features and microstructures to nano-scale dimensions of your products and samples

Surface and structural materials analysis can drive understanding of the microstructural characterisation of materials. The microstructure or surface properties of a material is typically influenced by its chemical composition and production or processing route and these properties can impact the chemical, physical and mechanical properties and hence its function and performance in the intended application or formulation.


Intertek's surface analysis expertise includes particle analysis and identification, such as the elemental analysis of solid samples, detection of impurities and identification of physical and chemical defects. Surface sensitive analyses also includes thin film analysis, depth profiling, penetration studies, and cleanliness studies. Our global network of surface science laboratories provide analytical expertise to support research, forensic, troubleshooting, quality control and more. Our surface analysis teams are experienced in measurement across a wide range of sample types including polymers, films, coatings, geological and mineral samples, pharmaceuticals, raw materials, metals, plastics, ceramics, glass, food, dust, contaminants and other sample types
