The worldwide experience in petrographic and mineralogic analysis aquired by its staff, allows PetroLogic Synergy to offer a detailed characterization of a broad variety of geomaterials during their entire productive cycle.
Some examples are:
- Raw materials for lime and cement industry (limestone, marl, clay), building materials (sand, clay, chalk, slate, terracotta), hydraulic concrete, mortars and plaster (aggregate and clinker).
- Dimension and building stones for architectural and artistic applications (marble, granite, travertine, etc.).
- Industrial minerals and industrial products (zeolite, bentonite, kaolinite, feldspar, quick limes, fibers, ceramic, etc.)
The research activities and the availability of advanced analytical instruments enables PetroLogic Synergy to offer material analysis from the mesoscopic to the nano-scale. These analysis can be customized to the specific needs of our customers.
Petrographic examination is carried on according to the European (EN) and North American standards (ASTM, CSA). The petrographic analysis is the ideal tool to determine the composition and the quality of geomaterials, such as building stones, hydraulic concrete, and limes.
Petrographic analysis with modern optical and electron-optic techniques is a powerful tool during the exploration stage and the early stage of production, during which generates important data about the micro-structural, chemical, and mineralogical characteristics of raw materials.
