Chemical Analysis

Quantitative chemical analysis determines the elemental composition of materials by weight percent. At American Testing Services, quantitative analysis is confined to metals and their alloys, and we are able to perform the following types of testing:

  • Positive Material Identification (PMI)
  • Optical Emission Spectrometry (GDS)
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES)
  • Combustion Analysis (Carbon and Sulfur)

American Testing Services also performs qualitative and semi-quantitative chemical analysis by energy dispersive x-ray analysis using the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).
