Bureau Veritas takes pride in providing unique solutions to challenging problems through materials characterization

Materials Characterization is a branch of materials science that incorporates elements of physics, chemistry, engineering, and other disciplines to examine the structure and properties of materials, from the atomic level up to the coarse grain structural level. Our electron microscopes allow us to determine the structure of a sample down to its elemental composition and detect stress or internal fractures. We can determine sample composition, fiber and particle size, material origin, foreign substances, physical defects, and various other properties.

We are experts at analyzing a wide range of samples, including:

  • Fibers and particulate
  • Stack emissions
  • Metals and alloys
  • Textiles
  • Water and sludge
  • Residues
  • Corroded surfaces
  • Building materials
  • Cast Metals and ceramics
  • Composites and polymers
  • Product failure samples
  • Nanoparticles

We thrive on providing the industry’s best solutions to your challenges.
