Aerospace & Automotive

Aerospace and automotive components work under extreme conditions. Temperature, strain and other factors create technical challenges that require reliable testing of particles in structural materials to ensure that safe, quality components are being manufactured for use in aircraft and vehicles. 

Filters, fuels, lubricants and other fluids along with ceramic coatings, glass, and metals are just some aerospace and automotive components that utilize particle characterization analysis in the development and troubleshooting process. These industries also rely on physical characterization results to verify the quality of raw materials in manufacturing to ensure the safety of the final product.

Particle characterization plays a large part in making sure that materials adhere to regulatory requirements and are consistent, safe and meet intended specifications. 

Examples of materials we have analyzed for the aerospace and automotive industries include: 

Brake fluid

Carbon nanotubes and carbon fiber

Engine coolant

Epoxy & resin powders

Filter material

Glass & ceramic material

Inconel 

Nanocrystals

Oil and fuels

Paint

Polymers

Powder coatings

Titanium

Waxes and rubbing/polishing compounds

 

This is only a small representation of the sample types we have analyzed for the aerospace and automotive materials industries.
