Product Testing

FORAY Laboratories proudly provides high quality analytical services, most commonly to consultants, product manufacturers and suppliers. Our team of highly trained consultants work with major stakeholders of the project to determine their needs, and provide targeted quality testing to meet their requirements.

Commonly clients require items to be tested to determine compliance with voluntary standards (such as VOC Content of Primers, Paints, Thinners or Sealants), fire or slip testing of materials to building code standards, or specialized investigations to determine the composition of unknown deposits (particularly in cases involving product failure).

FORAY's team of specialised scientists and consultants are knowledgeable in a range of techniques including, but not limited to:

  • Corrosion Assessment
  • Scanning Electron or Optical Microscopy
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Analysis
  • Customised testing for clients

Using advanced analytical equipment, FORAY Laboratories routinely analyse sorbent materials, such as carbon and XAD-2 Tubes in accordance with the NIOSH Method, to determine concentrations of Formaldehyde and Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) within the indoor environment and emitted from products. This service is publicly available should you require testing.

In addition to routine analysis, FORAY Laboratories provides a range of custom testing to clients, including Surface Electron Microscopy (SEM) or Fourier Transform Infrared Analysis.  

Please contact our Laboratory team through Dr. Liliana Apateanu or Nick Joy on +61 (03) 9544 9111 or via email to discuss your product testing needs.
