Plastics & Polymers

MCS provide a range of polymer testing services, including determination of the material properties of paints, coatings and structural polymers.

We use state-of-the-art FTIR, SEM and EDX microanalysis tools to characterise composition of a huge range of polymer materials.

Modern engineered plastics are strong, light weight, resistant to chemical attack and corrosion, and come in a enormous range of colours and textures.  With the increase in use of such materials has come the need for different analytical techniques, expertise for their characterization, and thorough plastics testing.

From routine measurement of chemical properties to complex failure investigations MCS have the tools and experience necessary to support polymer manufacturers and users.
