Background

The plastic characterisation lab in Kortrijk is complemented by the Centexbel laboraties in Zwijnaarde and Grâce-Hollogne to offer a complete range of plastic related tests and evaluations.

Our test offer also includes a fully automatic Near Infrared measuring system for all kinds of non-black plastic flakes, granules and pellets, that is highly suited to rapidly detect the composition of plastic samples directly from production or from a recycling process.

Composite materials

Fibre-reinforced plastics (FRPs) are made from a textile reinforcement in a polymer matrix. Centexbel-VKC dispose of the adequate equipment and expertise to perform detailed analyses of fibre reinforced composites and the materials they are are made from.
