Our Focus on Plastics Identification

At The Polymer Lab, we only provide testing services for polymers and plastics, which means we offer a very specialized testing range and highly experienced and professional staff.

What this means for our customers: Their plastics identification tests are carefully selected to provide information on all aspects of the polymer including fillers, contaminants, and the structural analysis of the test sample.

Getting Started

For companies who are new to working with The Polymer Lab, getting started with our service is very simple. We offer regular business hours on Monday through Friday, and we are located in Hopkins, Minnesota.

Our system is set up to receive samples through the mail. If you require additional testing, we may need double or even triple of that amount. We highly recommend to giving us a call before sending over your first sample, as we can recommend which weight you should send. The cost of overnight or two-day delivery for such a low weight is very reasonable.

If necessary, we do have rush services available—just let us know, and we can provide you with an estimated cost. Our rush services include a 24-hour turnaround time, which allows us to do any testing you require on the sample for a complete plastics identification.

Our Testing Options

Our team of technicians can quickly determine the best testing methods for your sample based on your required results. We have state-of-the-art equipment and software systems that allow for highly precise testing, including FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry), MFR (Melt Flow Rate), RV (Relative Viscosity), and TGA (Thermogravimetric Analysis) testing. We also complete full microstructural analysis, allowing full plastics identification and verifiable results for 100% accuracy.

If you have any questions about plastics testing, give our lab a call. We can discuss your needs and provide a highly competitive price for all your requirements.
