Analytical services

Our polymer analysing methods cover the whole range of standardised test applications. We analyse and test according to your requirements. Of course we will support you best possible in terms of standardised analysis as well as for the evaluation and interpretation of the results. Our experts are also pleased to prepare special procedures for non-standard analysis and develop new application-oriented methods. Please contact us for any issues.
