Ma.Tec. offers an analysis service, covering the physical properties of solid materials. ASTM standards are followed whenever possible, but customers can provide specific instructions on the measurement procedure to be adopted.  
Strict confidentiality is always guaranteed. Detailed reports are supplied to customers, including data interpretation and recommendations.
The following physical properties can be measured:
  • abrasion resistance (pellets)
  • crushing strength (single pellet and bulk)
  • friability (pharmaceutical pellets)
  • densities (true, apparent, bulk)
  • particle size distribution
  • BET surface area
  • total pore volume
  • pore size distribution (mesopores and macropores)
  • average metal particle size by chemisorption and by XRD
  • crystalline phase analysis by XRD.
