Products & Services
Primers and Adhesion Promoters
Primers and adhesion promoters are applied to a substrate to enhance the bond strength between a surface coating (e.g., clear coats, adhesives) and the substrate.
Absorbents and Adsorbents
Absorbents and adsorbents are minerals or chemicals that can capture liquids or gases.
Mortars and Pestles
Mortar and pestle sets are used to crush, grind, and mix small solids or slurries. The mortar has the shape of a small, heavy walled cup. The pestle looks like a miniature baseball bat, the end of which is used for crushing or grinding.
Property Testing Equipment
Property testers are used to determine various physical properties of samples, including cloud point, distillation, flash point, freezing point, melting point, pour point, and vapor pressure.
Environmental Testing and Analysis Services
Environmental testing and analytical services provide testing of environmental samples such as soil, water, air, and industrial wastes or byproducts.
