Contamination and trace impurities
Product defects and contamination are a reality in any industrial manufacturing environment. Understanding and correcting root causes quickly and efficiently is the key to maintaining customer satisfaction.
Arkema Analytical Solutions testing services can study the bulk of a material or of its surface to identify the origins of defects and/or contaminants. Analysis of chemical impurities at trace concentrations can shed light on the root causes of formulation and chemistry problems that affect product performance.
Typical projects include:
- Particulate inclusions
- Burned/degraded polymer
- Improper formulation
- Reaction side products
- Non-uniform layer thickness or composition
- Poor coating adhesion/delamination
