Chemical analysis and material diagnostics

Analysis & characterization of the materials

We examine your samples in accordance with standards and deliver reliable results within the shortest possible time - on fair terms.


Our services include quality assurance, substance characterization, element composition, stoichiometry, purity control and damage analysis, as well as comprehensive advice.

We identify around 70 chemical elements and can do even more:

We analyze metals, alloys, ores and minerals using:

  • Emission spectroscopy with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-OES)

  • Atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) with flame, graphite tube and hydride technology

  • X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF)

  • Solid-state OES

  • Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GDMS)

  • Non-metal determination by means of an automatic analyzer

  • Gas determination in metals using an oxygen-nitrogen-hydrogen analyzer

  • Anion analysis using ion chromatography (IC)

  • Liquid chromatography (HPLC)

  • Potentiometry

  • Spectrophotometry

  • Gravimetry

  • Dimensional analysis

Process optimization through bonding service

In order to optimize the sputtering process, bonding the target to a back plate has proven successful. Thanks to this technology, the sputtering target can not only be easily installed in the PVD system, but also the material yield increases significantly while the heat load is reduced at the same time. This leads to considerable cost savings, especially with complex, high-priced and very brittle materials.

Advantages of target bonding at a glance

  • Reduction of the target thickness by up to 50%

  • Lower heat load on the target thanks to improved cooling through heat dissipation via the back plate

  • Brittleness as a material property can be neglected (Si, B, Ge, MoS2, ceramic materials)

  • Back panels are reusable and therefore environmentally friendly

  • We manufacture back plates made of copper, stainless steel and molybdenum for you

We bond for your requirements

Choosing the right process is important to achieve a secure bond between target and backplate. Uniform heat transfer and good electrical contact must also be ensured, and the different expansion coefficients of the various materials must be compensated for.

We take these factors into account for you and offer you the right process for your combination of target and backplate.

You too can make your contribution to sustainability -

We are happy to help you develop individual solutions.

We believe that metals and alloys are essential today. You have made a decisive contribution to the development of mankind and are now at the beginning of a wide-ranging value chain. Major sectors such as the automotive industry, chemistry, electronics or mechanical engineering permanently require metals and alloys.

Recycling in Europe: Almost 100% of the metallic raw materials are imported

Against this background, we want metal recycling to be of particular importance in Germany. We feel obliged to act sustainably and see the ideally complete reprocessing and reuse of the residual metals and alloys remaining after the production process as a logical consequence.

That is why we offer complete solutions for material recovery - and turn scrap into raw materials. In this way, we contribute to minimizing energy and raw material consumption and can improve resource efficiency.

Among other things, we recycle

  • Chrome

  • Hafnium

  • Indium

  • Copper

  • Molybdenum

  • Nickel-chromium

  • Niobium

  • Silicon

  • Tantalum

  • Titanium

  • Tungsten

  • Zircon

  • And their alloys

  • Indexable inserts and hard metal tools made of tungsten carbide, hard metal fragments

  • Carbide micro-drill
