Anderson Materials Evaluation, Inc.


Analytical Laboratory for Materials Characterization, Failure Analysis, Quality Control, Materials & Process Development, Consulting, & Expert Witness Services. We provide: Surface Analysis (small-spot XPS or ESCA); Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) with ATR, transmission, and specular reflectance; Thermal Analysis (TGA, DSC, TMA for CTE); Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WD XRF), Electrochemistry; Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS), Residual Gas Mass Spectroscopy (RGA-MS), Microscopy (SEM/EDX, Metallographic, & Inspection), UV-Vis Spectroscopy in transmission and reflectometry, Contact Angle Measurements, and Mechanical Testing. We are an independent material testing laboratory with a highly educated and professional staff capable of: Engineering and chemical materials testing, including metals, semiconductors, polymers, inorganic chemicals, glasses, ceramics, composite materials, and organic chemicals.

Analytical services are provided for adhesives & sealants, aerospace, automotive, building, ceramic, chemical, coatings, communications, defense, electronic, fabric, glass, machinery, marine, medical device, metals, mineral, optical, packaging, paint, paper, pharmaceutical, plastic, power, sports and recreational equipment, and transportation applications. Surface chemistry, interfaces, thin film analysis, coatings, particle analysis, plastic testing, ceramics, fibers, inorganic compounds, cleanliness and contamination (especially silicones), water content, adhesive bond failure analysis, corrosion rate, thermal properties such as thermal expansion (CTE), glass transition temperature, melting temperature, quantitative elemental composition, composite material composition, surface tension measurements, mechanical properties, and assistance with advanced materials and process development are among our special interests.

Dr. Charles R. Anderson, Dr. Lorrie A. Krebs, Dr. Ambareesh D. Murkute, and Dr. Michael S. Barclay will be happy to talk to you about your materials analysis projects. At least one of us will manage your project.
