Chemical characterisation of a great variety of solid and liquid materials, of an inorganic, organic, and mixed nature, using the latest, most advanced° equipment to analyse major and minor elements, as well as trace elements.
Technology consulting in the field of materials characterisation, development of new test methods, and assistance in starting up company laboratories.
Study of the crystal structure and thermal, mechanical, physical, and surface properties of raw materials and end products. All from macro to nanometre scale.
Aplicación de las técnicas de microscopia electrónica de barrido con unidad de microanálisis (MEB) y espectroscopia de fotoelectrones (XPS) al estudio de defectos, la evaluación de microestructuras, partículas, alteraciones superficiales y recubrimientos, incluso en capas superpuestas de espesor nanométrico.
Characterisation of the properties of inorganic materials and ceramic compositions in relation to their behaviour in the different manufacturing process stages (rheology, plasticity, mechanical properties, coating adhesive strength, drying curves, firing range, gloss and texture, etc.).
Great variety of finished product tests, some of which are accredited by ENAC (Spanish National Accreditation Body), on:
• Ceramic tiles
• Vitreous china sanitary ware and bath tubs
• Structural ceramics
• Floorings (slip resistance, wear…)
