Clay Minerals


  • Qualitative phase analysis
    XRD analysis of geological, chemical or industrial samples with identification of phases and semi-quantitative estimates of their abundance based on the relative height of peaks in the diffraction pattern.
  •  Quantitative phase analysis
    Accurate quantitative analysis of materials using crystallographic techniques.
  • Clay mineralogy of whole sample
    Clay fraction (<2µm) extraction and semi-quantitative clay mineralogy.
  • Clay mineralogy of <2µm fraction
    Semi-quantitative clay mineralogy on supplied <2µm fraction.
