Plastics Testing Solutions

Characterization of polymers’ properties is critical in the development and manufacturing processes of materials, as well as the quality control, and ultimately, in determining the functionality of a finished product. Polymers find applications in virtually every facet of human activity and industry – from packaging to automotive, electronics to healthcare, and construction to aerospace. Understanding these properties is critical as a polymer material moves through its lifecycle of raw material → compound → semi-finished → finished product. The wide range of Instron® and CEAST product offerings are tailored to address each and every critical area during the lifecycle of a plastic material
