Coal Tar in road material

Celtest have now added Coal Tar Identification and Analysis using UV fluorescence testing equipment. The numerical data provided by the QED instrument are the various hydrocarbon fractions and also the sum of the US EPA 16 PAHs and the individual benzo(a)pyrene content. The UV fluorescence instrument uses the whole hydrocarbon profile to "identify" the hydrocarbon type(s) present. This is a different approach to tar analysis.

Celtest have benefited from support for the purchase of the UV fluorescence analyser from the Welsh Government’s £63.4m SMARTCymru programme. Backed by £27m of EU funds, SMARTCymru is helping businesses in Wales develop new products, processes and services by supporting increased investment in research, development and innovation.
