Polymer testing and characterization

FILAB can characterize your polymers using the following techniques:

  • FTIR polymer and copolymer identification
  • Thermal and physicochemical characteristic determination using DSC
  • Chemical state determination (amorphous, semi-crystalline, crystalline)
  • Crystalline phase analysis using DSC
  • Additive identification (slip additive, UV stabilizers, antioxidants…)
  • Mineral filler determination
  • Detection and quantification of contaminants (residual solvents, heavy metals, phthalates, bisphenol A…)
  • Overall migration test
  • Specific migration test
  • Analysis of container/contents interactions
  • Study of ageing materials
  • Pollutant identification (embedded particulates)
  • Deformulation/Reverse engineering services
  • Dispersity analysis
  • Curing rate determination
  • Morphological analysis (porosity)
  • Surface defect characterization and adhesive problems
  • Catalyst substitutions in the case of a change in regulations
  • Kinetic analysis
  • Production optimization (curing)
  • Chemical compatibility and biocompatibility analysis
  • TGA and TGA-FTIR analysis
