Our material analysis services
We test your material’s chemical and physical properties quickly and reliably. We use a whole host of methods geared to your requirements to analyze the various materials such as polymers, rubber, polyurethanes and coating systems (including the additives, active ingredients, metals and ceramics they contain).
You can use our analysis results to make targeted improvements to your products. We provide you with expert advice and, if necessary, develop customized concepts and special solutions to analyze your material.
We are certified to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Our employees have many years of experience and are actively involved in research activities and numerous expert committees. We thus ensure the latest research findings are reflected directly in our portfolio of methods and consulting services.
Typical areas of application for materials:
- Construction: building materials, components
- Electrical engineering/electronics: cables, housings
- Consumer goods industry: textiles, furniture, household goods
- Transportation sector: rail, road, air and sea
- Pharmaceuticals and crop protection: tablets, seeds
We test polymer materials and their raw materials, additives and fillers using cutting-edge methods. We also help you with product and process development, identity verifications, complaints, quality control and market monitoring.
Our key areas of expertise for rubber and additives are analyzing elastomers, thermoplastic materials and vulcanizates. Analyses are performed using determination of particle sizes and molecular weight distributions, structural analyses, quantification of ASM, stabilizers, emulsifiers and plasticizers, and thermoanalytical characteristics.

Surface and solid-state analysis for materials
To optimize your processes and ensure the causes of errors are identified quickly in the event of production problems, we provide you with precise statements about the material quality, morphology, microstructure and phase composition of your materials. We do so with the help of diverse methods such as electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, infrared microscopy and X-ray diffractometry. Further information on surface and solid-state analysis for materials can be found here.
To ensure your products meet safety requirements, our fire technology analyses provide information about your material’s fire performance. We support you with experimental investigations, assessments and concepts for almost all issues relevant to fire technology.
