Product development and troubleshooting:
Structural analysis characterises plastic materials used in manufacture.
Techniques include FTIR, DSC, TGA among many others.
Gas Transmission Testing
Oxygen and Water Vapour Transmission testing - OTR and WVTR or MVTR gives you the data you need to best control the shelf life of your product.
Our suite of Mocon Ox-Tran & Permatran instruments are the most reliable for the job.
Tensile and Mechanical Testing
Quality Assurance: Verify that plastic packaging meets its specificatons.
Benchmark the performance of a new product to establish a specification.
In a tendering process, compare performance of offerings from different suppliers.
Physical Properties and other tests
We routinely test many aspects of performance including thermal analysis,
UV and visible light transmission, density, bond strength, COF, friction, pack leakage, heat-sealability, thermal shrinkage, OIT, MFI and many others.
