Analysis and Characterization

Getting to the heart of the matter - analysis and characterization

Treibacher Industrie AG is accustomed to examining all materials in depth. We use the latest material characterization processes – which in turn benefit our product know-how.

Analytik und Charakterisierung - modernes Labor bei Treibacher Industrie AG

Latest material characterization methods

For this purpose, we have one of the industry's most state-of-the-art laboratories for analyzing inorganic substances. We can therefore, for example, also perform analyses internally under GMP-compliant conditions. Characterization and functional material testing, application characterization and other special inspection methods are performed with external partners.


Chemical analysis (instrumental)

  • X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF)
  • Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS)
  • Inductively coupled plasma and optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES)
  • Inductively coupled plasma and mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)
  • GDMS (glow discharge mass spectrometry) analyses
  • NIR spectroscopy

Physical analysis (instrumental)

  • Particle size distribution (PSD)
  • Specific surface area (BET)
  • X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD)
  • Scanning electron microscopy (SEM/EDS/WDS)

Colloid chemical analysis
