Characterization and Failure Analysis (Analytics)

Coatings (Thin Films), Semiconductors, Metals, Ceramics and Microstructures

Polymers, Composites and Adhesives

To know why

Functional coatings can modify surface properties of different materials to optimally serve their designated purpose. Our analytical laboratory provides a wide variety of surface measurement systems and experts which help us and our customers in the fields of quality management and failure analysis. In particular, we see ourselves as contact partners for the analysis of thin films and multilayer systems both of crystalline and amorphous nature. It is our objective to answer your questions competent and promptly.

To know why

Polymers are the key ingredients of most modern components. The term “Polymerics” includes the chemical, physical, and process-related changes of polymer materials throughout their life cycle. Our expertise is in the analysis of physico-chemical and long-term properties of polymer materials. In particular, we offer expert’s reports and failure analysis services. Support in process engineering and surface analytics, especially in the area of adhesion technology, completes the “Polymerics” portfolio.
