Sampling service

At the heart of any successful production process lie two key elements: first, obtaining a small sample that is truly representative of the whole, followed by an analysis of that sample using standard techniques and methods to establish compliance and quality of the source.

Sampling is a key part of the product development process in order to fully test the structure, material, functionality and whether the product visually meets expectations. To achieve such quality of service to the clients Chemelco offers a full sampling service to all clients. Chemelco has stock of samples in its Dutch office from various suppliers to assure that samples are shortly sent after receiving the requests from clients.
