Analysis of Residual Solvents

Analysis of residual solvents from SGS – identify residual solvents in a range of situations, from processes and packaging to pharmaceutical products.

Residual solvents from construction materials are responsible for a number of health and safety concerns in the building industry. These range from the exposure of construction workers to solvents from paint, glue and mastic materials to the long-term exposure of building occupants to aldehydes emitted from fibreboard or solvents from varnishes. As a result, you need to account for residual solvents accurately.

That is why we provide you with analytical expertise for identifying and quantifying residual solvents, using proven and highly accurate techniques, such as thermal desorption gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (TD GC-MS) and Headspace GC-MS.

Why choose analysis of residual solvents by SGS?

Our service helps you:

  • Identify and quantify residual solvents in a product
  • Detect residual solvents in packaging
  • Determine levels of residuals solvents present as process impurities in patent disputes to prove patent infringements
  • Identify the deliberate or accidental inclusion of solvents in raw materials or the ‘carry over’ of residual solvents from one stage of the process to the next
