Failure Analysis Services for Adhesives and Sealants

Chemir has experts in determining the cause of adhesive failures. We ask the right questions, offering an outside perspective on troubleshooting problems.

Adhesives and sealants may fail due to loss of bonding to a substrate. We can investigate these failures, as well as problems within the adhesive layer itself. Incorrect material selection, surface preparation, formulation issues or contamination problems can lead to adhesive and sealant failures.

As an independent laboratory, Chemir a second opinion for determining root cause and responsibility. Each adhesive or sealant failure is unique and requires its own set of analytical methods and solutions.

We offer recommendations for prevention of future adhesive product failures and when needed, our Ph.D. chemists are experienced in providing litigation support and expert opinions in deposition and trials (see Litigation Support).
