Polymer Material Testing
Polymer material testing encompasses various chemical, mechanical and physical analysis techniques to characterize plastics, laminates, resins, composites, and other polymeric materials. Comprehensive characterization of polymers is essential in delivering a safe product and ensuring product durability and performance over its lifecycle.
Chemical Analysis: Provides insightful information on structure, composition, molecular weight, weight distribution, etc. Furthermore, residue, additives, fillers, and VOC analysis in polymers help understand their effect on polymers’ stability and durability. Investigative chemical studies can also be performed for deformulation/reverse engineering of competitive products, comparative product studies, failure analysis of faulty products, and regulatory testing. Quality control of polymer raw materials and finished products is another area where chemical analysis techniques are frequently employed.
Physical and Mechanical Testing: Understanding the physical properties of polymers is essential for product manufacturers to maintain industry standards. Mechanical and physical characterization of polymers is widely used in industries from aerospace, automotive, defense, and consumer products to biomaterials. Bulk and surface mechanical testing include the tensile strength of polymeric films, fibers, coatings; strength, hardness, flexural and compressive properties of polymers for durability and elasticity, etc.
Other physical characterization techniques routinely employed for polymers include thermal analysis (DSC, TMA, TGA, among others), rheological testing, electrical testing, optical testing, thermal testing, weathering, and environmental testing, including but not limited to humidity, UV, sterilization testing, etc.
