Chemical analyses

General activities

Methods of chemical analysis by IGOS:

Photometry/UV spectroscopy

For example, the concentration of hexavalent chrome on the surface of materials (chromating / passivation) is determined using ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy (UV-VIS) in accordance with DIN EN 15205.

Standard methods in electrochemistry

As well as these special processes, IGOS has at its disposal all the standard methods in electrochemistry, such as hull cells for the regular monitoring of production solutions or for determining the behaviour of an electrolyte when new electrolytes are being introduced.

Measuring equipment can be used, for example, for monitoring the stresses developing in electroplated coatings with a view to optimising the layers and process. (Equipment: MSM200)
