Characterisation Techniques

The Group  uses various complementary spectroscopic, thermal-mechanical and chromatographic characterisation techniques for polymers, additives  and  their products . This  is fundamental  to understanding  their physical and chemical behaviour and  is essential for the development and synthesis of new and novel additives and their migration in polymer systems, quality control and  targeted problem solving.

Testing and Analysis

The Group also undertakes analyses and  testing of property performance and long term durability of  wide range of substrates including oils, coatings,  proteins, starches and polymers as well as  testing  polymers processibility, stability, recyclability, degradability  and compostability.  This work is supported by fully equipped modern testing and characterisation laboratories.
