Chemical resistance testing

Chemical resistance testing evaluates the chemical resistance of a base material closely to approximate the in service conditions of a given material, including the temperature differential between the external and internal surfaces of the equipment, which may accelerate permeation of the subject media. Chemical resistance testing may be used to simulate actual field in-use conditions insofar as a qualitative evaluation of a system after a predetermined period of exposure. When you require chemical resistance testing or formulation support, CMTL can help. Our laboratory services include deformulation (reverse engineering), contaminant identification. We offer customized chemical analysis to answer your questions using the following media;

  • GC - Gas Chromatography
  • HPLC High Performance Liquid Chromatography
  • UV-VIS
  • FTIR Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
  • IC - Ion Chromatography
  • ICP - Inductively Coupled Plasma
  • Chemical Composition Analysis
  • Heat Transfer Fluid Testing
