A reputable company producing maintenance products for automobiles (metal polishing lotions, leather care) received complaints from their clients that the quality of their products declined, especially for products bought in Canada. They suspected that their products are being counterfeited. They contacted EMSL to perform a comparative analysis of genuine and suspected counterfeited products, sold under their name. Complex analysis employing various techniques (light microscopy, SEM/EDX, physical properties measurements) revealed that indeed the products were not identical. The analysis is the key evidence in a lawsuit that is scheduled for trial in January of 2010.
