Polymer characterisation

FILAB characterises your polymers :
  • Identification of polymers and copolymers by FTIR
  • Determination of thermal properties by DSC (Tg, Tf,…), physical-chemical properties,…
  • Determination of material condition (amorphous, semicrystalline, crystalline)
  • Study of crystalline phases by DSC
  • Identification of additives (slip agents, anti-UV additives, antioxidants, etc…)
  • Determination of mineral fillers
  • Detection and quantification of contaminants (residual solvents, heavy metals, phthalates, bisphenol A, …)
  • Global migration testing
  • Specific migration testing
  • Analysis of container/content interactions
  • Ageing studies
  • Pollution identification (particle inclusion)
  • Deformulation or reverse engineering (additives, aids,…)
  • Determination of polydispersity
  • Determination of the rate of cross-linking
  • Morphology studies (porosity)
  • Characterisation of surface defects and adhesion problems
  • Substitution of catalysts in line with the REACH regulations
  • Kinetics and reaction mechanism studies
  • Production process optimisation (cross-linking)
  • Chemical compatibility and biocompatibility studies
