Compositional Analysis Lab Services

Composition Testing of Metals to Identify Elemental Content 

Compositional analysis of a supplier's products validates their use in manufacturing of components. By analyzing selected samples, IMR's material identification lab verifies a vendor's representation of their product. 

Determining the molecular chemistry of metals is primarily accomplished using FTIR and Micro-FTIR Spectroscopy.  This technique provides rapid confirmation that a sample is made from the proper material and often whether there are contaminants present.  Many failures are related from the use of recycled materials that get mixed prior to molding.

Thermal analysis techniques are used to determine such critical properties as Melting Point, Crystallization Temperature, Softening Point, and Filler Content.
