Polymer, Rubber and Other plastic materials
Polymers have to become a crucial part of our lives and most of the things around us are made up of polymers, Due to the increased usage of polymers, they need to be tested for quality as the toxicity caused by polymer and plastic can be hazardous. Polymer testing ensures that material complies with industry specifications applicable to industries such as aerospace, auto motive, consumer, medical and defence amongst other.
Identifying the capabilities and limitations of a material is of high priority to suppliers, manufacturers and products developers on every level of the polymer industry supply chain. Polymer testing help to perceive products efficiency to withstand different environment conditions, resistance against rough handling and also to determine shelf life of the product

Plastic material testing plays a critical role in the life cycle of a polymer, from the raw materials to the compound through to the semi-finished and finished product. Each per stage has different test requirements and each end user may require a different test solution depending on their role. Whether it is an product development (R&D) , Quality control (QC), Testing services(TS) , or Research (R)
One of the technique used for testing Polymers is DCS Differential Scanning Calorimetre. It is one of the important technicque used to investigate the response of polymers to heating. This testings have been used for decades to understand the behavior of polymeric materials. This techniqur tracks teh amount of energy required to increase the temperature of material. DSC is highly useful in its ability to deliver precise readings on a material’s specific heat capacity. By making accurate measurement of the heat capacity and temperature, DSC can detect changes in material’s properties at exact temperature, revealing important transition ranges and deterioration points.
DSC can be used for various reasons, including the observation of crystalline polymermelting and glass transition. DSC can also be used to study fusion, oxidation and other chemical reaction. DSC analysis is also an excellent test for ensuring quality control amont polymer materials. DSC can help evaluate sample purity and study polymer curing.
Test Method followed by METS Lab for DSC are:- ASTM D3418, ASTM E1356-08(2014), ASTM D3895, ISO 11357
