Wet Chemistry

Wet Chemistry, or Applied Chemistry, is often a necessary part of a testing program to dissolve, filter, extract, and isolate components of a sample for further testing.

Using these methods we support many clients with lot release testing, raw material certifications, and method development. These methods also serve a vital role in preparing samples to be tested in other laboratories within SGS Polymer Solutions.


Wet chemistry methods have a wide variety of applications.  They are frequently used for lot release testing and material certifications.  Other applications include:

  • Molecular Weight Analysis
  • Quality Control Assurance
  • Filler Content Isolation
  • Additives Package Isolation
  • Determination of Acid/Base Content
  • End Group Analysis
  • Sample Preparation
