Thanks to its significant experience in the study of materials and finished products, control and expertise, SFC supports manufacturers in the analysis of their materials.
The analysis laboratory offers a wide range of equipment regularly renewed and checked.

  • Identification and quantification of mineralogical phases
  • Measurements of crystallite sizes, graphitization rates
  • Identifications of crystal lattices
  • Observations of sectional and / or surface samples
  • Measurements of particle sizes, diameters and fiber lengths
  • Coating thickness measurements
  • Total porosity measurements (open and closed)
  • 3D reconstruction of a surface
  • Microstructural observations of a sectional and / or surface sample
  • The location of the geographical distribution of chemical elements
  • Local-off chemical analyzes (volume: 1 μm3) or scanning (volume: 10x20x1 μm²)
  • Dimensional analyzes
  • Defect studies on pieces
  • Microstructural comparisons of materials (new product / deteriorated product)
  • Surface composition studies (search for pollutants)
  • Product damage studies (corrosion, oxidation mechanisms, etc.)
  • Benchmarking studies
  • Deformulation studies
  • Analytical development
  • Development of test methods
  • Training on the methods developed
  • Validations of methods transferable to the client
