Greenology Tech Center
There are several parameters to consider during the manufacturing and processing of plastic products. Our Greenology Tech Center has the equipment that allows us to perform different types of analysis to ensure the quality and content of a raw material upon delivery.
The first step is to execute a general characterization of the polymers that may be contained in a material by using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and a Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) that shows if the material contains any other components, for example fillers. We can also measure Melt Flow Index (MFI) which is an indicator of the flowability of a thermoplastic and indicates how easy or hard it will be to process the material. We also have the possibility to measure density, mechanical properties and perform X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF) by using an X-Ray Spectrometer to determine if a material contains any heavy metals.
The technology that our Greenology Tech Center has, allows the material team to have full control of our Greenology compounds.
In our Greenology Tech Center can we perform a wide range of polymers tests according to the following standards:
Charpy impact properties
Izod impact strength
Melt mass-flow Rate (MFR)
External moisture content
Density of non-cellular plastics
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)
