Polymer Testing Services

At Anderson Laboratories, we are focused upon helping you solve and understand your polymer related issues.  We will apply the most efficient analytical approaches to assist your company with a cost-effective characterization of your materials. 

We can assist your QA/QC team to establish or validate compliance with specifications on raw materials, mixtures, formulations, compounds or final products.  We have an array of analytical tools and extensive reference libraries to respond to your specific needs.  When a product is non-compliant, or a deeper understanding of the structural, chemical, mechanical or physical properties is required, Anderson Labs is able to provide you with useful information related to a failure, contamination or a competitor’s product.

Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic analysis with Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) and integrated microscopic capabilities offers rapid surface analysis of non-metallic samples as small as 10 microns.  Additional resources available at Anderson Laboratories include numerous analytical techniques, a broad standards base and the ability to evaluate a wide range of unique engineering materials.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your specific polymer material characterization needs and determine the most optimum route to the results you seek.  Our aim is to provide you with the highest value professional services at a competitive price.

Please Contact Us for more information regarding this and other material testing services that could be beneficial to your organization.
