    Polymer Material Testing

    Polymer is a product formed by polymerization (addition polymerization) of a kind of monomer. In the production process of polymer materials, processing performance tests are required. At present, polymer material testing is developing in the direction of functionalization and specialization. How to solve the processability problem through the data obtained through the test with a fast method and the least sample amount is also the key to material development. The testing of polymer material properties is of great significance to product development and research, introduction of optimization process and product quality control. T,C&A Lab can test all kinds of polymers.

    Significance of polymer testing

    • Characterization of polymer structure
    • Understanding the microstructure, submicrostructure and macrostructure of polymers.

    • Determination of polymer properties
    • Evaluation and application of new materials, control of product quality, and study of the relationship between polymer structure and properties.

    • Determination of molecular motion of polymers
    • Different modes of molecular motion will lead to changes in the mechanical state of polymers. Each polymer has its own specific transition. Studying the relaxation and transformation of polymers can help people understand the structure of polymers and establish the relationship between structure and properties.
