Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES) also commonly called as chemical analysis or Spectro is a method to determine chemical composition of various metallic alloys in the engineering sector. This test is reliable, rapid, and economical and provides accurate chemical composition of most of the alloys. A sample of approximately 10mm by 10mm square can be tested without compromising quality and delay.

LMATS   is accredited to perform laboratory based OES Spectrometry chemical analysis on Ferrous alloys including Boron,  Stainless steel including Nitrogen, duplex stainless steel, austenitic stainless steel, tool steel, Copper alloys, brass, bronze, gun metal and Aluminium alloys.


LMATS can detect Boron content up to 0.001% in your steel to comply with Australian Standards.
