Testing and Evaluation
Our laboratory is designed to provide the fundamental testing and analysis of minerals including fillers and pigments. Key processing and product development measures allow for complete in-house project development. Mineral characterization, drill core testing, and final product application testing are all typical laboratory protocols. Our experienced staff of professionals understands the importance and accuracy of these tests and testing methods. A general scope of our testing and evaluation systems includes the following:
X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Viscosity, Zeta Potential, Chapelle Test, X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF), Abrasion, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Particle Size and Distribution, pH, EDAX, Brightness and Color (L, a, b values), Conductivity and Loss on Ignition (LOI).
