Polymer Testing Services

Our Labs Offer A Wide Range of Testing and Analysis on Polymers

ATS’ polymer labs utilize various analytical methods to discover and verify mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties of plastic and rubber materials. These processes assist in material identification, establishing preventative maintenance plans, identifying causes of failures, and verifying product performance. ATS carries ISO 17025 accreditation by A2LA for a majority of the test methods related to polymers.
