Laboratory study of plasticizer migration phenomena

Are you looking to study the migration of plasticizers found in your packaging materials ?

Plasticizers, including phthalates, are oily, odorless liquids that are regularly used to improve the physical properties of plastic materials. These plasticizers can be dangerous for human health and the environment if they are released or if they leach into a product.


The EU and the FDA have regulated the use of plasticizers to limit such risks.


As an industrialist, you are required to meet these requirements to avoid any product degradation and any health risks for your customers. A study of plasticizer migration into your product is therefore essential to better understand these phenomena.
