chemical analysis

Understanding the makeup of your materials is important for chemical verification, selection, and contaminant identification.

Our team of experts utilize the best tools to provide accurate and consistent results. At MES, we offer several techniques for quantification of your chemical components for a wide variety of materials, including:

  • Metals

  • Plastics

  • Polymers

  • Powdered metals

  • Ores

  • Ferroalloys

  • Composites

  • Ceramics


Laboratory Testing services are performed to ASTM, MIL, API or other specifications. Additional services include identification of thin films, inorganic phases, precipitates, and contaminants within our extensive E-Beam lab. Elemental dot maps or line scan profiles are produced with either EDS or WDS chemical data collection. Our micro FTIR can provide identification of particles down to 5 mils.
