JENSEN HUGHES provides qualitative and quantitative analyses and characterizations of nearly all industrial-type materials and byproducts. Our ability to identify unknowns is often crucial in determining the causation of product failures and industrial mishaps. Our specialties include the analysis of adhesives, coatings, plastics, cements, plasters, ceramics, woods and metals.
