Material Development and Analytics.

Independant. Reliable. Expert.



For 130 years we have been developing and casting precious metal alloys for a host of applications. Also for medical engineering, where pure precious metals and precious metal alloys are still in use today. In particular, precious metals such as gold, platinum, silver and palladium are popular niche materials.

The development and analysis of precious metal alloys follows a long tradition at Cendres+Métaux. This not only requires a special infrastructure, but also considerable expert knowledge and experience. We have therefore always employed specially trained material scientists, physicists, chemists and laboratory personnel who can accompany these processes safely and competently.

The most important processes are accredited by the Swiss Accreditation Offices according to ISO/IEC 17025. In addition, the analytical laboratory is inspected regularly by the Swiss Precious Metal Control Office. Accreditation means that our laboratories are autonomous in their inspection decisions, have competent personnel available, operate according to validated methods and can retrace the inspected goods to the inspection results.
