Laboratory for the analysis of lubricant additives in plastics

In order to improve or control the performance of your plastics, you are looking for a laboratory to quantify the lubricant additives

The role of a lubricant additive is to lubricate the plastic packaging to reduce friction between one part and another. Lubricants are almost all improved by additives that provide several functions: anti-oxidation, anti-corrosion, detergent…

Thanks to the complementarity of our analytical tools and our dual expertise in chemistry and materials, the FILAB laboratory offers several types of services related to the analysis and control of lubricant additives in plastics, according to reliable analytical methods:

  • Identification and analysis of lubricant additives 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…
  • Physico-chemical characterization of polymers: study of physico-chemical and thermal properties by DSC, ATG, NMR, SEM and FTIR
  • Support in the development of your products based on lubricant additives: optimize the use of your lubricants, control the compliance of your dosages, assistance in the formulation of the product, assistance in the substitution of a CMR product…
  • Deformation of polymer products to highlight the presence of lubricant additives through qualitative and quantitative analysis
  • Development of customized analytical methods in accordance with current standards

Through our three levels of services – analysis, expertise and R&D support – FILAB assists companies of all sectors and sizes in the analysis and characterization of lubricant additives by providing its clients with the know-how and experience of its team.
