Leading material science testing for product & process development

Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

Safety data sheets (SDS) are chemical product information sheets which highlight risk and hazards associated with the chemical or chemical formulation of the products being investigated.


Corrosion is the deterioration of a material by a reaction to its environment. CETEC has extensive experience in the assessment, investigation, diagnosis, remediation, and prevention of issues related to different types of corrosion, including Microbially Induced Corrosion (MIC). CETEC is a member of The Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA member)

Materials Failure

Failure analysis is a critical process in determining the root cause of problems encountered. It is a complex process that requires many different technical disciplines, and a variety of observation, inspection, and laboratory techniques. CETEC utilizes highly sensitive laboratory analysis techniques to examine and provide technical advise to clients.


Recently, building fires due to combustible cladding have been at the forefront of building risk mitigation. Determination of building cladding composition via chemical analysis techniques provides a quick answer to insitu cladding composition, compliance, and risk of combustibility.

Product Testing

Materials can be tested to ASTM, ISO or Australian Standards to determine properties and composition through our NATA accredited laboratory.

Emissions Testing

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and Formaldehyde have an adverse impact on the environment and are hazardous to health. CETEC utilizes highly sensitive laboratory analysis techniques and standardized test procedures, to identify and quantify traces of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air due to emissions from products.
