Plastic materials analysis

  • Material identification by infrared spectroscopy (FR-IR)
  • Thermogravimetry of polymers (TGA): decomposition temperature and speed, quantity of volatile substances and / or additives and / or fillers
  • Solvent extraction and gas-chromatographic analysis (GC-MS) of volatile components
  • Tear resistance (tear resistance)
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Density measurement (apparent volumetric mass)
  • Exposure to laboratory light sources
  • Other specific tests
  • Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC): verifies physical parameters (melting temperature, crystallization and ventral transition)
  • Ashes
  • Vicat softening index
  • Melt flow rate
  • Tensile test (5 tubes)
  • Compression set
  • Shore A or D hardness test according to the UNI standard (5 sizes)
  • Phthalates research according to UNI CEN ISO / TS 16181
  • Compatibility tests with liquids according to UNI standards
