We test raw materials to check their suitability for your product

The ability to identify a material can be important for many different reasons. It is often a question of whether the right raw material was used for manufacturing a product and is also often connected with incoming goods controls. These matters can be very simple, but they can also be complex. Normally, a combination of infrared spectroscopic analysis and thermal analysis is used. This provides information on the type of polymer.

If detailed information on the additives, fillers and reinforcing agents is needed, additional thermogravimetric and spectroscopic methods  can also be used.
