Once electronic components get smaller, more dedication is required. Our cleanliness and microcontaminant testing services can help to improve your components reliability.

FT-IR and Microscope FT-IR

FT-IR stands for Fourier transform infrared. Once a sample exposed to IR radiation, some radiation is absorbed by the sample and some passes through (is transmitted). The IR absorbed and transmitted is a spectrum representing a sample ‘fingerprint’. A few examples of common materials identified by FT-IR are: Cleansers and Detergents, Paints, Oils, Paper, Gel, Glue, Epoxy, Resin, Fibers (Synthetic and Natural), Plastics, Elastomers (rubber).

FT-IR is a very powerful technique to characterize the chemical composition. As the FT-IR measurement is non-destructive other analytical technique might be applied afterwards.

Liquid-borne Particle Count (LPC)

Our Liquid-borne Particle Count testing method is used for measuring the particles suspended in a liquid medium, on a surface, or within a fluid delivery line. ALS Pathumthani provides various particle extraction methods like agitation, pressure rinsing, or ultrasonic.

For some industry; automotive for example, the particle characterization is analyzed by gravimetric, sizing and counting by microscopic, or nature determination (either manual or automate). Our service is complied with ISO 16232 or VDA19 requirement.

Ionic Chromatography

The IC instrument is dedicated to the analysis of trace amounts (ppb) of anions such as F-, Cl-, Br-, NO2, NO3-, SO42-, and PO43- or cations such as Li+, Na+, K+,Mg2+, Ca2+ and NH4+.

SEM/EDX Analysis

SEM-EDX is powerful in problem-solving instruments with variety of possible applications.
Some of the common applications include:

  • Determination of elemental composition of material or particles down to sub-micron level
  • Distribution of elemental composition of a material across a microscopic surface, and determination of corrosion or oxidation.
  • Measuring plating thickness
  • Inter-diffusion layers between metals
  • Explosive particles analysis
  • Abrasive particles analysis

GCMS and Thermal Desorption-GCMS

GCMS testing can be used for analyze and trace amounts of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds or organic residues such as: hydrocarbon oil, residual monomers, and additives in polymers and adhesives.
