Materials testing is required to ensure that industrial products and their component parts can perform according to their intended use and endure their expected performance period. Shiva's materials testing lab can provide answers to stakeholders to make prudent business decisions about products and processes. We offer a broad range of material testing services including compositional and chemical analysis from percentage level to ppb levels, metallurgical testing, corrosion testing and RoHS testing. Material testing typically involves destructive methods of testing, however Shiva also performs some types of non-destructive testing to provide information and answers when materials and products cannot be damaged.
We are equipped and accredited to test and analyze a wide-range of specimens and products for many applications and industries. Our materials testing procedures conform to ASTM, BIS, DIN and other national and international standards. Our laboratory having been approved by US Consumer Product Safety Council can take up toy testing as per CPSIA recommended methods.
Shiva can assist you with selecting and verifying materials, trouble-shooting production problems, investigating product failures and meeting regulatory requirements such as RoHS and REACH.
Our services include the following:
Chemical analysis services include qualitative and quantitative analyses performed by instrumental and classical wet chemistry methods to determine material composition and elemental content, including trace elements. Shiva lab focusses on metals, plastics, rubbers, ores, ferroalloys, composites and ceramics. Shiva's Chemical analysis lab also provides restricted substances (RoHS and REACH) testing apart from SEM, XRD analysis and Elemental analysis on Leco analysers.
Corrosion testing performed in accordance with ASTM practices to help you select materials, treatments and manufacturing processes and determine the impact of environmental conditions on their products
Metallurgical testing includes micro hardness testing and macroscopic examinations to evaluate surface and internal features, defects and material characteristics.
Our capabilities include polymer identification using ATR IR, DSC, TGA estimation of volatile organics, residual monomers etc. using GCMS /LCMSMS techniques
