Polymer Division Laboratory


Polymer department at Razi Applied Science Foundation specializes in analysis of compounds, plastics, resins, elastomers, monomers, polymer additives and other plastic and polymer materials. Our laboratory performs tests for flammability, thermal, mechanical, chemical and physical properties for a range of plastic materials. Routine and non-routine projects are also perform in the RASF polymer department. We have decades of experiences in the field of polymer analysis coupled with strong educational backgrounds. To insure the accuracy and reliability of results, our polymer lab testing methods adhere to ASTM, ISO, DIN , ... standards.
