ENERPLASTICS ADVANCED LAB
At EnerPlastics, research and development receive as much attention as manufacturing and distribution, for the company believes in constant evolving and growth. The manufacturing lines of the company is backed by state of the art testing and controlling facilities in a laboratory equipped for research and development work.
EnerPlastics Advanced Lab is the first facility in the plastics field in UAE , equipped with highly sophisticated equipment’s. EnerPlastics Advanced Lab focuses mainly on the developments and research of specialized products such as the Oxo-Biodegradable masterbatch, which is now commercially supplied in both local and international markets.
EnerPlastics Advanced Laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certified by Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) in 2013 and since october 2016 accreditation is granted by Gulf Accreditation Council (GAC) of GCC Accreditation Center. EP Advanced Lab Accreditation scope includes testing of Physical and Chemical characterization, Thermal Properties and Weathering tests on polymers & Plastics.
It is the only ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certified laboratory for testing plastics in the MENA region which can carry out independent polymer testing acceptable to international bodies.
EnerPlastics Advanced Lab Instruments
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer (FTIR)
A Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer, abbreviated as FTIR, can generate an infrared spectral scan of samples that absorb infrared light. FTIR is the first step in identifying a polymer.
X-ray Fluorescence spectrometry
XRF (X-ray fluorescence spectrometry) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to identify and determine the concentrations of elements present in powders, granules, films, pellets and beads.
Tensile tests measure the force required to break a plastic sample specimen and the extent to which the specimen stretches or elongates to that breaking point. Tensile tests produce stress-strain ..
Coefficient of friction (COF) testing is used to determine the frictional characteristics of a plastic film and sheeting. It is generally determined to the ease by which two surfaces slide against each other.
The UV chamber simulates the effect of UV with fluorescent ultraviolet (UV) lamps, while rain is simulated by the condensation of humidity. In the solar spectrum UV light represents roughly 5% ..
Thermal Analysis Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)
Differential scanning calorimetric or DSC is a thermo analytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature.
Spectrophotometer is an instrument for physical analysis which provides wavelength-by-wavelength spectral analysis of the reflecting and/or transmitting properties of the object without..
Microscopic analysis is helps to fully understand microstructure and product property relationships. Microscopy techniques are used to produce visible images of polymer microstructures or details that are..
SEPAP is used to examine the photo degradation mechanisms of polymeric formulations in laboratory conditions and to monitor material characteristics such as Mechanical properties..
Xenon Arc weathering chamber
Xenon lights provide the best simulation of natural sunlight. As shown below, with an appropriate filter combination, their irradiance spectrum can be adapted to match closely the natural..
