State-of-the-Art Chemical Testing Laboratory


In 2013, AET expanded its suite of services, investing in a state-of-the-art chemistry lab in St. Paul. Our principal chemist has more than 25 years of experience with the chemical analysis of concrete and construction materials in independent, production, and manufacturing environments. We provide a full suite of chemical, analytical and spectroscopic services and tests for the construction industry.

In collaboration with our Petrography Group, Asphalt Lab and Cement/Concrete Lab, our chemical testing laboratory supports engineers, architects, building owners, manufacturers, government agencies, product developers and state departments of transportation as well as other chemists and petrographers.

AET's Chemistry services add value to client projects by not only providing routine chemical testing and analysis, but also by helping clients determine how testing can be designed and utilized to best serve their particular needs. Forensic testing helps identify the source of the problem and what happened, so our clients can reduce re-occurrences. They also learn how to improve their products or uses of their materials. Our chemical analyses and services include, but are not limited to investigations of:

• Adhesives
• Caulks and Sealants
• Chemical admixture and additives
• Curing agents and sealers
• Paints and Coatings
• Polymers
• Portland cement and products:
   - concrete
   - mortar (modern and historic)
   - stucco/plaster
• Sheet and vinyl composition flooring

Contact us with your questions. Our capabilities cover the full range of materials testing, site sampling and field investigation as well as research and design for existing or planned projects.
