Chemical Analysis for the Construction Industry
It is not always possible to determine the properties of a material or deduce why a material has behaved in a particular way by physical methods. The chemical analysis of construction materials allows a fundamental understanding of the make up and behaviour of construction materials to be developed.
UK Analytical offers a substantial portfolio of chemical analysis for construction materials.
