Polymeric Materials

Polymers (e.g. thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and composites) may have faults, fractures and wear, for example. CEMITEC has a catalogue of analyses and tests of the composition and behaviour of materials to provide technological solutions to improve their performance.

ENAC accredited analysis and testing:

  • Chemical characterisation
  • Physical testing
  • Metallographic characterisation
  • Failure analysis
  • Thermal analysis
  • Rheological analysis
  • Wear and abrasion testing
  • Ageing and weather resistance
  • Specific testing
  • Laboratory scale processing
  • Defectology

Technological solutions and consulting in:

  • High-performance low-weight materials
  • New iron-based alloys
  • Alternative coatings
  • Improved response to requests from fatigue, corrosion and wear
  • Nickel-based alloys for high temperature applications
  • Hydroforming applications for materials
  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Improved weatherability
  • Improved adhesive properties
  • High temperature materials

CEMITEC has been investigating polymeric materials since 1989. Its extensive experience, advanced technological knowledge and leading laboratory equipment accredited by ENAC make it a reference centre able to provide customised solutions to different sectors: e.g. automotive, wind, energy, agri-food, packaging, domestic appliances and construction.
