Material Testing: Plastic & Polymer Testing Lab
Plastics and polymeric materials are important in a host of industries and applications. Packaging materials, medical devices, parts for consumer and electronics goods, time release excipients, and food additives are just a few of the many uses for various types of plastics and polymers. Synthetic polymers might be tested for leachable chemicals or composition while hydrocolloids could be characterized for molecular weight (Mw) distribution using size exclusion chromatography (SEC) or rheological properties.
Alliance Technologies‘ lab employs a number of material testing techniques well suited to the characterization of polymers themselves, including infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), thermogravimetric methods (TGA), and tensile or hardness material testing. Contact one of our lab chemists to discuss your polymer characterization needs.
