There is a strong need for Analytical Testing during Product Design project phases. Our analytical testing spans a wide variety of areas including:
- Predictive heat buildup- ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared (UV-vis-NIR) reflectance, transmittance, and absorbance
- Polymer performance- heat and shear stability, impact resistance, tensile strength, flexural modulus, viscosity, and flammability
- End-group and unreacted monomer analysis
- Dispersion quality and contaminant and impurity identification
- Micro infrared spectroscopy
