Materials Characterization

Bureau Veritas’ microscopy group takes pride in providing unique solutions to challenging problems through materials characterization.  

We can determine sample composition, fiber and particle size, foreign substances or physical defects, material origination, and various other properties.

 

How we can help you…

 

Nanoparticles

NIOSH recently announced its recommended exposure limit (REL) of 1 μg/m3 elemental carbon as a respirable mass 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) concentration. Bureau Veritas’ accredited laboratories can analyze your sample using NIOSH 5040 for elemental carbon.  In addition, we have the ability to characterize a sample taken side-by-side for carbon nanotubes (CNT) and carbon nanofibers (CNF) exposures.  Our analysts and microscopists have project experience evaluating carbon nanotubes and fibers, graphene, titanium dioxide and other metal oxides from the aerospace, electronics, and manufacturing industry sectors.

 

Product Analysis

Small changes in your manufacturing process can introduce variation or contamination that may affect your finished product either in quality or functionality.  Whether it’s a finished surface flaking or corroding or a raw material purity issue, Bureau Veritas can help you develop a scope of work and provide testing to identify the source of your issues.

Using sophisticated methods, including scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Inductively coupled plasma – mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and other advanced analytical techniques, Bureau Veritas can provide a solution to your unique project.
