Envista Forensics Launches In-House Materials Science Lab Capabilities


CHICAGO, Feb. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Envista Forensics, a global forensic consulting firm, has announced the first of a series of in-house materials science lab capabilities launching today.

Envista Forensics Launches In-House Material Science Lab Capabilities

Envista has been investing heavily in lab services technology and can now offer Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy analysis in-house, a specialized technology that can help identify defects in materials that may have resulted in a failure. This service is the first of four set to launch throughout the year.

“Although we have already provided FTIR for clients for the last 10 years, our ability to centralize this process, without the need of a third-party, will allow for a simpler, more streamlined approach to provide reports,” explains Wes Grandlienard, Technical Director – Electrical/Mechanical, Envista Forensics.  “The goal is to eventually provide this service not only to clients but also to any other companies in need of this type of materials testing.” 

FTIR is a well-known testing technique typically used to identify materials such as plastics, paints, petroleum products, pharmaceuticals, and organic acids.

“This type of analysis is used to ensure materials are performing in the way in which they were intended,” said Kristin Striber, Forensic Laboratory Technician, Envista Forensics. “FTIR can help determine defects, installation issues, contaminations and a number of other failures.”

Over the course of this year, Envista will be releasing more in-house materials lab services including:

  • Ionic Contamination Testing – Used to detect potential contamination of electrical/mechanical equipment often caused by water or smoke damage via ion chromatography 
  • Shingle Desaturation – Used to determine potential cause of roofing damage, via vapor degreasing 
  • Fire Debris Analysis – Used for fire investigations to analyze fire debris for potential ignitable liquid residues, via gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)
