St. Louis, MO (PressExposure) July 09, 2009 -- Polymers, plastics and composites can be found in a wide variety of industries, including medical devices, aerospace, automotive, sporting goods, toys, industrial products, construction materials, consumer goods and more. When challenged by tough plastic and polymer problems, manufacturers turn to Chemir Analytical Services for independent, reliable answers.
An unknown material is often the underlying cause of many difficult problems in plastics and polymers. The goal of material identification is to understand the chemistry of the major components. Chemir has developed expertise in identifying and characterizing unknowns in plastic and polymeric materials through analytical techniques and expert interpretations.
Chemir Analytical Services is also the industry leader in the deformulation of products and materials. Also known as reverse engineering, deformulation is the separation, identification and quantitation of ingredients in a formulation. Chemirâs experienced chemists have performed deformulations on hundreds of products and have the skills and the tools to successfully deformulate the most difficult materials.
Chemirâs polymer and plastic deformulation services are unique. âOther labs may provide simply a list of major ingredients or classes of compounds as their deformulation resultsâ, explains Aaron Cassely, Senior Director of Technical Services, âHowever, a Chemir deformulation report will include a complete table of ingredients, analysis and interpretations, methods used, conclusions, observations as well as the original data.â
From patent infringement to failure analysis, Chemirâs results have helped companies solve tough problems with plastic and polymer materials. âPlastics and polymers are extremely complex materials,â said Dave Riggs, President of Chemir Analytical Services. âWhether diagnosing a problem concerning product failure, researching a new additive, characterizing a competitorâs product or researching the infringement of a patented product, Chemir Analytical Services offers full service support to any industry dealing with plastics and polymers.â Press Release Distribution By PressReleasePoint
