Laboratory tests for plastics & polymers

Mechanical, environmental & rheological testing

We offer a large selection of mechanical, environmental and rheological tests. Mechanical testing includes measurements such as tensile, flexural, shear and compressive testing. Environmental testing can be  ageing, thermal cycling, humidity  and  other conditioning testing that can be used to evaluate the product’s performance in demanding environments. Rheological testing is most commonly used to determine the best processing conditions for plastic, and the methods include capillary rheometry, rotational rheometry, brookfield viscosity and others.  

Laboratory tests for plastics & polymers

Thermal properties

Measurements for plastics and polymers with thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), thermal mechanical analyis (TMA), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Thermal analysis can be used to determine material’s thermal stability, reaction and curing kinetics, decomposition, phase transition properties (melting, crystallization, glass transition), quality control, compositional analysis (fillers, plasticizer and polymer content), and to determine the optimal processing temperature.

Compositional analysis

We offer a selection of analysis methods to determine the composition of your plastic and polymer products. Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) can be used to efficiently identify the main polymers in your sample. For more detailed composition analysis, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), Thermogravimetry (TGA) or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) can be used. In addition, to get more information about your polymer’s or plastic’s molecular weight, molecular weight distribution and branching we offer a wide variety of different size exclusion chromatography (SEC), also known as gel permeation chromatography (GPC), analysis methods.
