Polymer Testing

BTRA has sophisticated instruments for testing various materials and caters to multiple testing needs of manufacturers & suppliers of plastics, polymers, adhesives, paints, resins, rubbers, etc. The details are as follows –
Thermal Analysis
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), High Pressure Differential Scanning Calorimetry (HPDSC), Thermogravimetric Analysis(TGA)
Identification of products, determination of melting points, glass transition temperature, analysis of fillers, evaluation of thermal stability, degradation products, combustion products, thermal history, product purity and many more.
Fourier Transform Infra Red(FT-IR) Analysis
Characterisation and identification of organic compounds, polymers, wetting agents, finishing agents, binders and many more.
X-ray Diffraction Studies
Identification and characterization of various materials, based on the type of crystal and its x-ray diffraction pattern
Gel Permeation Chromatograph
(GPC) For determination of average molecular weights and molecular weight distribution
Evaluation of Flame Retardancy
Measurement of oxygen requirement for a sample to burn and comparative evaluation of FR agents and chemicals.
Static Charge Dissipation
Evaluates static dissipation performance of plastic films, laminates, industrial fabrics etc. and suitable for performance comparison of antistatic agents.
Instron 4240 (Universal Tensile Testing Machine)
Studies in tensile, compression, bending, shear properties and cyclic testing
Colour measurement, colour matching and specification of colour.
