Polymers and Rubber Testing

Polymers have become an indispensable part of our modern lives, possessing countless applications. Most of the things around us are made up of polymers, whether it is your credit card, laptop, automobile accessories, tyres or mobile phone, all are manufactured from polymers.

The scope of this field is so wide that no one knows what miraculous applications would come out of polymers. Thus there arises a need of testing the quality and checking the performance of these polymers as a raw material as well as finished products. This can avoid the risks and issues related to product failure.

Spectro has a well-furnished laboratory for Polymer Department which is fully equipped with all the necessary instruments and equipments needed for carrying out various tests related to Polymers and Rubbers. We own a team of well qualified and experienced personnel who are well versed with the current technologies being used worldwide.
