In many manufacturing processes, your products come into contact with metals and alloys, which can corrode under certain circumstances. 

Corrosion effects can thus lead to metal ion contamination in liquid products and consequently cause severe economic damage. For example, basic pH changes during application or the strong basicity of main products can lead to the formation of metal hydroxides as particulate structures. These entries can lead to blockages by authorities of entire batches of pharmaceutical products, for example, or can be deposit in freeze-dried samples, leading to a similar result.

The analysis and elucidation of these corrosion effects should therefore often be countered with cross-linked analysis. Wet chemical methods such as pH measurements or spectroscopic methods such as Raman spectroscopy or scanning electron microscopy with a simultaneous use of energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy can help to identify the material responsible for the corrosion.

Solid-State Detectives will work with you to specifically get to the bottom of the problem. We help you identify the source of corrosion with customized approaches.
