Testing Services

Greater Service in Less Time

With experience in coatings, structural materials, water treatment and nanomaterials, GLC has expertise in performing many tests to industrially recognised standards such as ISO, IEC, and ASTM. We are pleased to offer our testing services to your business to help you in assessing your materials to achieve your R&D and quality goals.

 

Our tests, equipment and services offered include:

Rheology Testing: Measures viscosity & rheology of non-Newtonian fluids such as oils, solutions, more mixtures, inks. Standards include ISO 3219-2:2021, ASTM D2196-20.

Electrochemical Testing: Including coated and uncoated metallic specimens. Includes Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS, ASTM D8370-22, ISO 16773-2:2016), Linear Polarisation Resistance (LPR, ASTM G217-16(2022)), Tafel analysis (ASTM G59-97(2020)) and more.  

Goniometer Testing: Testing to determine how hydrophobic a surface is using water contact angle measurement (WCA, ASTM D7334-08(2022)), surface tension and surface energy.

Taber Testing: Measures a material’s resistance to abrasion and can measure materials such as plastics, coatings, paper, ceramics, carpeting, safety glazing, etc. Testing for paint includes ASTM D4060.

UV-Vis: Measures to what extent a substance will absorb light and can be used to determine certain chemical properties and presence of functional groups using ASTM E169-16 (2022).

Nanomaterials Characterization Services: Including characterisation of graphene related 2D materials using ISO and IEC recommended methods. We can work with you to determine a plan to characterise your nanomaterials leveraging our team’s experience in acquiring and interpreting data from numerous characterization techniques including Atomic Force Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, and optical microscopy. Please contact us to discuss what other services we can offer.  

Nano Drop 1: Measure dilute protein samples, perform kinetics experiments, and take optical density measurements of bacterial cultures.

Thin Film Applicator: Ideal for preparing test samples of coatings and paints.

Langmuir Blodgett Trough for Micro/NanoFilm Applications: Ideal for the preparation of self assembled monolayers.

High Temperature Furnace: Up to over 400 , ambient air.

Consultation: Electrochemistry, nanomaterial synthesis and characterisation, optical characterisation, corrosion and wear testing.

Dispersion services: Nanoparticles, hexagonal boron nitride & emulsions. 

Please contact us with tests you are wanting to be performed with number of samples and specific requirements.
