Plastic Laboratory Testing and Analysis Service
Need to outsource laboratory work to perform Plastics testing, analysis, evaluation, de-formulation, failure analysis, studies, research, development, and experimentation? Or simply want to save time and money by calling an independent 3rd party contract laboratory?
Associated Polymer Labs provides some of the shortest turnaround times in the industry. Many of the tests we perform require 3-5 days. Some extensive tests take longer, we prefer to complete all testing within 10 working days. Projects require more time. All reports are emailed. Rush turn around, generally less than 48 hours, is available at an additional cost.
Costs and Pricing
Associated Polymer Labs charges on a per test basis. Included in the price are all recommended number of replicate tests, analysis and graphs, and a basic summary report.
Basic tests like density, melt flow index of polyethylene, recycled plastic identification, light transmittance of plastic film, and gloss are inexpensive - starting at $35 per material evaluated. Other tests such as coefficient of friction start at $75. More complicated tests such as gas chromatography mass spectroscopy of polymer additives are slightly more expensive starting at $300.
Material Identification by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy including library search, interpretation and a summary report starts at $125.
Associated Polymer Labs ( TestPlastic.com ) can assist your company, organization, academic institution, or government agency in your routine and non-routine Plastics and Polymers testing, analysis, experiments, deformulation, product development, feasability, and research studies.
