Thermal Analysis

Polymers must perform at wide temperature ranges.  Let us meet your thermal analysis needs.  We often test plastics for:

  • Thermal History
  • Thermal Degradation
  • Phase Changes
  • Weight Loss vs Gas Environment
  • Melt Flow Rate
  • Calorimetry
  • Percent Base Polymer
  • Percent Mineral
  • Percent Filler
  • Percent Volatiles
  • Thermogravimetry

Physical Testing

For plastic components in machines and devices, physical testing ensures they are up to the task.  Durability and resistance to plastic deformation are important for these plastics.  We test for a variety of physical properties according to industry standards in a humidity and temperature controlled environment.

Material Testing

We also do materials testing to determine other types of properties of plastics and unknown substances.  Identify differences, confirm suspect materials, and determine exact components.
