Recycled Plastics Identification ID Testing and Analysis Service
Identify the post industrial or post-consumer plastic using our Plastic ID service at Associated Polymer Labs. We have over 30 years experience with plastics.
Using the latest Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectrometry technology we are able to quickly identify plastic types from the recycle stream.
- Positive Plastic ID from your recycling
- Identify the plastic prior to the purchase
- Reduce the number of cases of material cross contamination during the recycling process
- Contamination identification
- Know what is in your mixed plastic
$75 for Plastic Identification Service
Plastic Identification using FTIR is $75 per sample, includes a single page summary report with the top 5 plastics found in FTIR spectra Libraries and Infrared Spectroscopy Interpretation with comments.
Do you have many samples for identification testing?
Submit your samples (Table spoon to ¼ cup is plenty) to the following address:
