Analytical development for the polymer and composite industry

Additives play an essential role in plastics, they add value to plastic parts, increase their life span and optimize the process.

These additives can be :

  • Antioxidants
  • Anti-UV
  • Plasticizers
  • Pigments
  • Mineral fillers
  • Slip or release agents
  • ….

The addition of these additives is done during the formulation of polymers which are then transformed to obtain finished products by processes of extrusion, molding, rotomolding, etc…

In order to guarantee the conformity of the finished product, the industrialist must ensure the contents of additives present and guarantee the non presence of products prohibited by the legislation (Bisphenol A, Phthalates, Primary Aromatic Amines, heavy metals, etc…) which requires the development of specific analytical methods validated according to adapted reference frames (AFNOR, ICH, VICH…)

To develop a specific analytical method, FILAB mobilizes the skills of its best specialists.

Our analytical research and development laboratory handles all the different stages in the development of an analytical method:

  • Bibliographic study, definition of the methodology
  • Choice of the technique and the analytical method
  • Feasibility study
  • Isolation of the analyte
  • Purification
  • Development of the analytical method
  • Verification of parameters
  • Analytical optimization
  • Analytical validation
  • Implementation of a dedicated procedure

Then, depending on your needs, FILAB can also offer you the analytical validation of your method.

As a training organization, FILAB can assist you in the transfer of an analytical method within your laboratory through customized training services. The objective: to provide you with a robust turnkey analytical method!
