Ceramics Testing & Characterization
We offer testing of materials and products for raw material assessment, product development, quality control, product and material evaluation conformity, performance, safety, legislative and environmental impact purposes.
Testing and characterization forms the basis of any consultancy work that we do, giving us accurate data to assist with product and process development and optimization, and failure analysis.
We provide testing of:
- Advanced ceramics
- Engineered ceramics
- Medical ceramics
Testing can be divided into chemical analyses for bulk composition to trace analyses and mineralogical analyses for speciation and phase determination.
We also offer determination of physical properties such as grading, density, porosity, strength, rheology, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties and microstructure to study product failure or defects, failure mechanisms, inclusions, grain size and bonding structures, surface analysis, degradation and contaminants.
