Physical and Chemical Characterization of Polymers

Overview

Materials characterization is a vital part of product development and production process. Physical and chemical characterisation of polymers and polymeric materials helps developers to further their understanding of polymeric products and materials, thus ensuring better quality control. Our polymer characterization group has a wide range of sophisticated instruments to fully characterize polymers and polymeric materials right from their molecular properties to understanding the structure-property-function relationships of these materials. Our group caters to the holistic needs of polymers & advanced materials industry and addresses issues related to materials characterization and analysis.
