Polymer Testing and Analysis

Plastic Samples to be Examined Using FTIR
Why Test Polymers?
Polymer testing and analysis employs both physical and analytical methods to verify the chemical, mechanical, and thermal properties of a polymeric material. These properties are instrumental in making sure that the polymer part will perform as required by the end user.

For example, we can verify if the parts are the proper material using FT-IR, check for contamination using DSC, and then determine if the parts are degraded using the melt flow indexer. Additionally, mechanical tests such as durometer hardness, izod impact, tensile, and flexural strength are useful in determining the mechanical integrity of a part.

By using our FT-IR we can determine the composition of organic thin films, surface contamination, fibers or composites. Additionally, thermal characterization can assist in determining performance, process capabilities, quality, and aid in product development.
