Failure Analysis of Polymer Products

mechanicalThere are so many variables in the processing, transport, fabrication and installation of polymer products that when failures do occur it can be difficult to determine the root cause. Understanding the root cause of failures is vital to ongoing failure prevention and improving quality control.

AlfaTest CGS can provide a comprehensive failure analysis service of polymer products using advanced analytical techniques, such as electron microscopy, to determine the cause of polymer failures so that the right decisions can be made to ensure future reliability.
