Polymer TechnologyPolymer Technology works with characterisation and evaluation of polymeric materials properties, such as mechanical properties and life length predicition. A major part of our work is the base for certification of products for use in different areas, from packages to buildings.
Polymer Technology deals with plastics and rubbers in many different aspects. We evaluate the mechanical properties of polymeric materials and products durability in their environment of use.
A great deal of our work involves simulation of natural ageing by accelerated ageing in order to predict the technical life-length of products.
Packages have a short life-cycle and should disappear directly after use. Our biological laboratory can evaluate the degrability of these materials in different environments. In this field we have developed a new certification system, the Kappa-marking.
We also perform test and audits on certified building products such as sheets for buildings, roofing materials and wind protection layers.
Other products that we work with is flooring, vechicle parts,sports equipment, hooses, cables etc. In these fields we are often working with branch or company specific standards.
