Surface Properties

Rare earth elements play very important role in improving product performance and optimizing product structure. When metal materials are doped with a certain amount of rare earth elements, there is a significant improvement in optics, magnetism, hydrogen storage, and catalytic performance. For rare earth metal materials, the characteristics of the surface reflect the properties of the product. The surface detection of rare earth metal products mainly uses the method of spectroscopy to measure surface performance. Alfa Chemistry has advanced and complete equipment, such as an ultraviolet spectrophotometer, atomic spectrometer, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscope, transmission electron microscope et al, and also has an experienced team that can provide services according to customer needs.

Surface Properties


The significance of surface testing

Most of the materials in various mechanical equipment are made of metal. Improper use of metal or improper selection of materials can cause material failure and may cause serious accidents. As a link in the quality control of the production of mechanical parts, the surface corrosion resistance of metal materials (including finished and semi-finished products), the test of microscopic properties is becoming more and more important.

Our methods of analysis and testing

The analysis and testing methods of metal materials have been continuously developed, and the following mature methods have been used for metal detection: Spectrophotometry, Titration, Atomic Spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, Inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy, Spark direct reading spectroscopy, Carbon and sulfur analysis, Oxygen and nitrogen analysis et al.
