Gas chromatography (GC): 

Measure components in low ppm and ultra-trace levels, Determination of styrene purity for monomer and residual styrene for polymer.

according to ASTM D 5135 &ASTM D5508


Near Infrared Spectrometer:

NIR testing provide valuable quantitative and qualitative analysis for polymer and plastic materials, . it measure % Styrene, Ethylbenzene & mineral oil, ETC.

Gel Permeation Chromatography:

It can measure Gel content ,Swelling Index ,Molecular weight and molecular weight distribution.

Chromometer :

It measure the color of the final product.

Determination the mechanical properties of the final product. All devices from ZWICK ROELL the the leading company in mechanical devices.

Melt Flow Indexer:ISO 1133

measure melt flow rate &melt volume rate & melt density

Tensile Machine:ISO R 527-2

determine tensile properties of polystyrene (strength-modulus-elongation) to know how much it tolerate with stretching.

Flexural Machine :ISO 178

press on polystyrene till deformation and break to know how much it tolerate with stress.

Vicat Softening Temperature :ISO 306 B

To determine the softening temperature of polystyrene.

Charpy Pendulum Impact Tester:ISO 179/1eU

Determination of the brittleness or toughness of polystyrene( GPPS )

Izod Pendulum Impact:ISO 179/1eU

Tester determination of the brittleness or toughness of polystyrene ( Hips )

All tests that related to water treatment is done in the analytical lab .

*Karl Fischer device:

Moisture detection in polystyrene and monomer.

Karl Fischer titration is a titration method that uses volumetric or coulometric titration to determine the quantity of water present in a given analyte.


For the objective calculation of visible light, UV light, or infrared light emission or reflection. (iron ,free cl,phosphate,zinc ,Nitrite, sulfate, TBC , Polymer content,toc)


Titration purpose & determination of aldehydes (aldehyde test).

* Viscometer

* Turbidity Meter

*Oil content analyzer

*Injection machine, Arburg,420 C-290 GE

forming a specific insert (plaques) from pellets for mechanical tests.

*Extruder machine

Detect the black spots and contamination of the final product.
