Analyses and tests
Chemical-physical analysis programs to characterize/identify materials and assess specific material properties
The group “Analytics and Material Testing” conducts research projects and helps industrial partners, experts and cooperation partners characterize or assess raw materials, coating materials, coatings and plastics. Our projects and contracts are generally concerned with national and international industrial issues.
Key areas of interest:
Selected analysis methods using infrared spectroscopy, Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermogravimetry (TGA) are accredited in compliance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. We also implement interface analysis methods, gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and characterize liquids and paints with the aid of rheological tests.
Apart from paints/paint constituents and coating systems, typical test objects include plastics/composites, fibres, operating utilities and system components/contamination.
