Polymer & petrochemical

Metal Plumbing Rust


Polymer properties are broadly divided into several classes based on the scale at which the property is defined as well as upon its physical basis. The most basic property of a polymer is the identity of its constituent monomers. A second set of properties, known as microstructure, essentially describe the arrangement of these monomers within the polymer at the scale of a single chain.

These basic structural properties play a major role in determining bulk physical properties of the polymer, which describe how the polymer behaves as a continuous macroscopic material

Chemical properties, at the nano-scale, describe how the chains interact through various physical forces. At the macro-scale, they describe how the bulk polymer interacts with other chemicals and solvents.

RMRC offers a complete range of analysis for polymers, and composites. These materials can be found in a wide variety of industries, including medical devices, sporting goods, toys, industrial products, construction materials, consumer goods and more

We have extensive experience in polymer and plastic analysis and processing. Our polymer and plastic testing experts have investigated a wide range of polymeric materials, including:
thermoplastics, thermosets, Elastomers, high-performance polymers, specialty polymers, composites, adhesives & sealants, paints & coatings

We use analytical instrumentation such as FTIR, Vicat, Optical Microscopy, MFI, SEM/EDS, DSC, XPS, Shore hardness.

Our polymer testing capabilities range from obtaining basic information to more detailed and structurally specific results. Depending on our clients' needs, we can offer a strategic combination of physical and chemical testing to answer specific questions.

Physical properties analysis includes:
tensile properties, adhesive strength, compressibility, cross-sectional multiple layer-film thickness, thermal properties (including glass transition, melting point, thermal expansion and crystallinity)
