JFP Technical Services, Inc. offers the following chemical analysis testing services to determine or verify that the materials used in your product meet your needs by: determining the material identity of unknowns, verifying that the materials meet quality requirements, identify possible types of contamination, to identify residues, fibers, and debris, sort mixed materials, and many other material tests to meet your needs. Though JFP Technical cannot perform all types of tests, we are continually adding new test methods to our services, based on your needs.

XRF Chemical Analysis:

XRF chemical analysis is fast test method that is usually a non-destructive test method that can be used in many chemical and elemental analysis applications for many types of materials. XRF chemical analysis is also a portable analysis method that can be brought to your plant or field location to test large or stationary items. JFP Technical uses one of the latest and most capable portable Niton XRF chemical analysis gun units available.

XRF analysis requires that the material or a sample of the material be placed in front of the X-ray beam that is emitted from the unit. This X-ray beam excites the atoms in the material, which causes them to emit electrons back to the detectors in the XRF unit, with each element in the material excited to a different frequency, which is sorted out and identified as a specific element by the detectors. The number of electrons detected for each element counted and is used to compute the composition of the material, which is then compared to known standard compositions for different materials and can be used to identify the material.

FT-IR Chemical Analysis:

JFP Technical also offers FT-IR analysis. Fourier Transformed – Infra Red (FT-IR) analysis is used to identify unknown plastics, rubber and other organic solids and liquids. This test method is also used to determine the quality or consistency in the composition of a sample. The FT-IR spectrum obtained from this test represents an individual fingerprint of the sample with absorption peaks at specific frequencies, which can be used to compare against known standard spectrum in our library of spectra to identify or quantify the sample.

This is a fast test that can be non-destructive if needed, requiring only a small amount of sample to be taken from the materials to be tested. Our Bruker Alpha Platinum FT-IR unit is portable, and can be brought to your plant or test site for large volume testing projects.

JFP Technical also provides many other chemical analysis methods to provide the testing you need for your product or project. Call for more information on the testing you may need.
