The characterisation of polymer main components as well as the detailed recording of additives and fillers are one of our core topics. UV stabilisers, flame retardants and glass fibre contents are just as much our concern as ageing or leaching processes.
Plastics are a science in themselves. We can offer you the necessary depth of detail, no matter whether you need a quick incoming goods inspection or whether you are interested in the most exact content of a UV stabiliser.
Our in house examination methods have grown with the queries of our customers, which is why we are sure to be able to offer you the most suitable method for your demands.
The following questions often occupy us:
Material identifications by means of infrared spectroscopy are interesting as a fast and cost effective method for compounders and injection moulders as well as for processing companies.
The determination of the contents of glass fibres and/or glass beads is often decisive for material properties. We offer quantitative and qualitative determination using various methods (e.e. SEM-EDX).
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is ideally suited for breaking down plastics in term of individual components.
Are your materials used in medical devices? Then tests for leachable substances (leachables) may be an interesting topic for you. This can concern both organic substances (e.g. phthalate plasticisers) and inorganic substances such as catalyst residues. We are able to offer you the required tests.
