The use of chemical compounds and products sometimes causes failures in various types of materials, such as metal and plastic parts. Although chemicals are generally stable under normal storage conditions, they are often volatile, which can cause corrosion of some metals, including stainless steel. In addition, they can cause rapid degradation of plastic materials and their composites.
The release of chemical compounds can cause air contamination of buildings and warehouses, inconveniencing personnel and contaminating products and consumer goods, even through packaging. Using air and product analysis, we can help you with this type of disaster by assessing the nature of the contamination, its origin and severity.
Finally, in collaboration with our fire investigation experts, our chemistry experts can determine the origin and cause of fires and explosions due to chemical reactions caused by the presence of solvents, gases, dust or chemical incompatibilities.
