Plastic Testing Lab

Plastic Testing Lab

The Applied Technical Services plastic testing lab identifies a multitude of plastic characteristics — physical, chemical, and thermal — that vary according to their composition. These specific traits make one plastic a more attractive design material than another, depending on how the manufacturer intends the product to be used. Manufacturers need to positively verify those performance characteristics for any variety of reasons, be it quality control or failure analysis, to establish whether that plastic component will perform its function satisfactorily. When they need to confirm or discover those qualities, manufacturers send their samples to a plastic testing lab like Applied Technical Services to get the answers they need.
