Laboratory for the analysis of antioxidants in polymers and plastics

An antioxidant is a molecule that slows down or prevents the oxidation of other chemical substances in contact with them, which increases the life of the product or polymer material for example. Antioxidants are used in particular by manufacturers in certain plastic polymers, rubbers and adhesives….  

FILAB, a chemical analysis and characterization laboratory for polymer materials, provides manufacturers with analytical techniques to control the concentration of antioxidants, particularly in polymers.

FILAB offers several types of services related to the analysis and control of antioxidants, using reliable analytical methods:

  • Identification and analysis of antioxidants by HPLC-MSMS, GC-MS and Py-GCMS: bisphenol A, phthalates, BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene), 2,4,6-TTBP, Uvitex OB, Irganox 1076, Irgafos 168, Irganox PS800, Chimassorb 81, Irganox 1010, Irganox 1330, Irganox degradate
  • Characterization of polymers: study of physicochemical and thermal properties by DSC, ATG, NMR, SEM and FTIR
  • Support in the development of your antioxidant-based products: optimize the use of your antioxidants, control the compliance of your dosages, help in the formulation of the product, help in the substitution of a CMR product…
  • Deformation of polymer products to highlight the presence of antioxidants through qualitative and quantitative analysis
  • Development of customized analytical methods according to current standards

Thanks to the human skills and the complementary technical means available in our laboratory, our objective is to accompany you in the resolution of your industrial problems, both from a technical point of view and in terms of advice and recommendations.
