SiRoPAD

The sIRoPAD scans the samples distributed on the reflection plate in a continuous pass, measures and saves the results both as a complete file with all information or as Excel files via USB or WLAN on the PC.

Universal tester

The universal tester is used to determine the tensile stress diagram, the bending modulus and compression force of plastic samples

TGA

TGA is an analytical method that measures the changes in weight of a test sample during a heating process.

MFR

The Melt Flow Rate measures the ease of flow of melted plastic and represents a typical index for Quality Control of thermoplastics.

ISO certified mould

Requirements relating to multipurpose test specimens for plastic moulding materials intended for processing by injection or direct compression moulding.

Impact test on plastic films

Determination of the energy that causes plastic film to fail under specified conditions of impact of a free-falling dart. This energy is expressed in terms of the weight (mass) of the missile falling from a specified height which would result in 50 % failure of specimens tested.

Heat Deflection temperature

The heat deflection temperature or heat distortion temperature is the temperature at which a polymer or plastic sample deforms under a specified load.

Hardness of Plastics and Rubbers

Hardness is defined as a material’s resistance to permanent indentation. It is one of the most measured parameters and often reported on technical data sheets of plastics and rubbers.

GPC

Gel permeation chromatography is a size based (molecular length) separation technique.

FTIR

IR (infrared)-spectroscopy is a form of spectroscopy which is specifically active in the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectra.
