At PMC Polymer Products, we adhere to a strict philosophy of building quality assurance into the manufacturing process. That starts with labs certified to ISO 9001:2008 standards and includes sizable capital investments in our plant to guarantee consistency to customer specifications.
Our customers trust us to adhere to their strict specifications because they know we test materials during every stage of production. Unlike some in the plastics industry, we are able to perform continuous testing because our testing is conducted on-site.
Here is a partial list of testing that our customers have come to expect from PMC Polymer Products:
Measure tensile strength (& elongation) - stretch until bar breaks
Resistance to bending
Measure resistance to breaking
Measures chemical components via elemental analysis to assure proper composition to meet customer’s requirements. Used to monitor flame retardant chemicals in products.
Used to aid in measuring level of components in products. Number relates directly to densities of materials used to make products.
Uses reference standards to meet the customer’s exact “color matching” for his product.
Used to dry a known amount of sample to determine moisture content (weighing before and after). “Loss on Drying”.
Measures nitrogen content of a material. We use this to measure the level of antistatic “active” compound in our product.
For measurement of inorganic content in compounds and masterbatches.
Products of correct make-up will have characteristic flow properties when heated. Affected by the type of plastic used and materials compounded into the resin.
Heat Distortion Temperature/Vicat Softening Temperature: Gives an indication of the temperature at which a part begins to soften or bend under weight.
Measure electrical surface resistance of product. Critical for performance when letdown to make film for anti-static bags (Example: computer parts bags). Products are designed not to allow for build-up of static charge.
UL standard for testing flammability of plastic materials
AMINCO smoke density chamber for relative comparison of smoke development
Laboratory-scale compounding equipment for preliminary product development formulating.
1” single-screw extruder for small-scale lab letdowns of concentrates.
Used for preparation of films for testing of flame retardant and antistatic masterbatches.
Used for the preparation of ASTM Test bars.
