Other services

The LEREM is equipped with the necessary facilities to study a majority of the technical aspects of metal packaging.

Particle size study by laser granulometry

IR, UV analysis

The LEREM is equiped of an UV spectrometer and of an IR spectrometer, mainly used for the study of lacquers.

Optical analysis

The LEREM is equiped with an optical microscope that allows him to carry out expertises on packaging and determines the causes of some problems that could have manufacturers or users.

  • Lacquer analysis by means of Fourier Transform Infra Red spectroscopy
  • Searching for water traces in non aqueous products using the Karl Fisher method
  • Measurement of varied physico-chemical characteristics (pH, tin content, viscosity, flash point…)
  • Various vapour-phase chromatographic analyses (catharometer or flame ionization)

Determination of the packaging pressure resistance of various materials (glass or plastic packaging…).

Storage with temperature cycles

The LEREM has two ovens of 50 and 100 litres able to be programmed from -25°C to +150°C for studying container/content pair during periods of several months with temperature cycles.
