We at Polymer Advantage have expertise with various characterization equipment that enable us to test and analyze material properties. Below listed are some of the equipment that we use to characterize polymers

  • Size Exclusion Chromatography | measure molecular weight, weight fractions of polymers, etc
  • Thermo-gravimetric Analysis | measure ash content, filler content, etc
  • Dynamic Scanning Calorimetry | measure melting point, crystallization, polymer thermal transitions, etc
  • Rheological analysis | measure viscoelastic properties of materials from liquid to tough thermoplastics
  • Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy|preliminarily identify material chemical structure
  • Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometer|Evaluate chemical compounds qualitatively
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy|Evaluate morphological properties
  • Reaction Calorimetry | measure reaction kinetics, energy absorbed/released, reactants consumptions, etc
