Is it possible to determine whether a paint, a plastic or an adhesive are filled with inorganic materials (pigments and extenders)?

Yes, the test is relatively simple since we just completely incinerate the sample and weigh the residue. Fillers are made of inorganic compounds, oxides or salts, that do not burn and do not evaporate.
