Physico-Chemical Analyses

Recoll performs physico-chemical analyses applied to raw materials and finished products for all industrial sectors.
Our know-how allows us to accompany our customers in their phases of product formulation, control material but also in the context of pollution research and expertise.

Whether it is to analyze pollution, to assess a product or to de-formulate a competitor material, in order to be certain that your product complies with the specifications, that it is not defective or that it is safe for the consumer, our Service analysis accompanies you on your problems.
