Our physical testing laboratory performs a variety of physical and mechanical tests in accordance with ASTM and ISO testing procedures. Accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by A2LA, the lab provides reliable testing data for each specified test. Physical test consulting is available for a wide range of tests and products to ensure the product meets your application requirements.
Industries such as plastics have a strong need for analytical testing, and much of this testing — from quality assessment to product analysis — is done in-house. Network Polymers can assist your organization with all analytical testing needs. We provide solutions using decades of technical expertise and equipment in our own lab, and are connected to many outside testing facilities that offer an even broader range of analytical expertise.
Our analytical capabilities span the following areas and more:
With many years of formulation experience, our Color Department will match your standard, chromatic or special effects colors to your specifications in the right resin for your application. Our Color Specialists will develop the most cost-effective formulation to meet all of your weathering and regulatory requirements and provide excellent lot-to-lot consistency while maintaining the resin's critical physical properties.
Advanced xenon-accelerated weathering instruments allow us to speed up the effects of solar radiation, water and heat on our customer products. As a result, years of outside exposure are easily visible in a matter of weeks to months. We perform weathering testing of plastic products using a wide range of established weathering protocols designed to meet today's industry needs.
