Application-Oriented Materials Analyses



The Fraunhofer ISC's Center for Applied Analytics is your partner for all R&D or production related analyses. The Institute's proven competency in materials science and choice of investigational methods is complemented by a vast array of state-of-the-art equipment and advanced sample preparation techniques and so can guarantee analysis solutions in any given situation. The range of analysis services includes failure analysis as well as damage prevention strategies in quality assurance and covers characterizations as well as special material issues that may come up during individual R&D stages.

In-depth analysis is a key tool in materials R&D. That is the reason why the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC, specializing in materials R&D, holds a number of materials analysis methods available in its Center for Applied Analytics. The equipment is accessible for both in-house and external project partners alike.

The Center for Applied Analytics is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and has a RAL and EUCEB approved test laboratory for mineral wool.


The Center welcomes any R&D challenge and also offers production process optimizations and quality control concepts.
