Base Metal Testing (From Aluminum to Zinc)
Base metals, also known as common metals, are typically ordinary and inexpensive materials, compared to their sister precious metals. However, that does not mean that these base metals are not valuable.
On the contrary, these base metals are used in a variety of applications across many industries and are in high demand. These base metals are commonly used because of their low-weights, high electrical connectivity, non-magnetic properties, and strong resistance to corrosion. These metals are used in manufacturing, consumer electronics, construction, plumbing, roofing, industrial machinery, motor building, automotive, aerospace, wiring, and many more.
From copper concentrates to ores to smelted materials, we can accurately test, analyze and report on the quality of any of these base metals, non-ferrous metals and alloys. We regularly analyze aluminum, copper, lead, lithium, nickel, tin and zinc for their material content and purity.
At Ledoux & Co., our full-service laboratory follows the strictest guidelines, procedures and quality control measures to maintain accuracy and precision. We document review and repeatedly meet high standards necessary to maintain our ISO 17025 accreditation. This includes the use of proper standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). We use only the most trusted methods to assay a wide variety of automotive and petrochemical catalysts, as well as precious metals and base metals in all types of materials. Our assay results are commercial grade and used for umpires, control purposes and financial exchanges.
We pride ourselves with top-notch, personalized customer service. For more than 140 years, we continue to provide the metals industry with accurate, unbiased results with credible and trustworthy performance
