Polymers are large molecules with unique physical and chemical properties comprised of many repeating units. These units are joined together to form long chains. The polymer can be the end product in itself, or it can be an ingredient that changes the properties of another mixture. Because the properties such as lightweight, hard, flexible and other special thermal, electrical, and optical characteristics, polymers are widely used in the furniture, communication, packaging, transportation and many other industries. The use of polymers is so pervasive that nearly all industries need polymer analysis either regularly or on an as-needed basis.
Our polymers scientists apply the most appropriate tests and analysis to get the data you need to understand the quality and performance of your products. We have previously analyzed essentially every major class of commercially available polymer including, but not limited to:
