E.styrenics Laboratory provide a Full analysis for styrene monomer and polystyrene for others, through a number of highly qualified devices to get the most accurate results .
Our labs have significant expertise in polymer and plastic product development, testing, process optimization, formulation, chemical analysis, and more...
All procedures are done according to
- Licensor (INEOS) Manual
E.Styrenics owns different kinds of labs covering the different activities of the company including:
- GC lab.
- Quality control lab.
- Analytical Lab.
- Application lab
Gas chromatography (GC):
Measure components in low ppm and ultra-trace levels, Determination of styrene purity for monomer and residual styrene for polymer.
Near Infrared Spectrometer:
NIR testing provide valuable quantitative and qualitative analysis for polymer and plastic materials, NIR identifies chemical bonds in a molecule by producing an infrared absorption spectrum in the range of near IR only which makes higher accuracy. The resulting spectra produces a profile of the sample. it measure % Styrene, Ethylbenzene & mineral oil, ETC.
Gel Permeation Chromatography:HPLC
It can measure Gel content ,Swelling Index ,Molecular weight and molecular weight distribution.
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:
measure melt flow rate &melt volume rate & melt density
determine tensile properties of polystyrene (strength-modulus-elongation) to know how much it tolerate with stretching.
Flexural Machine :
press on polystyrene till deformation and break to know how much it tolerate with stress.
Vicat Softening Temperature :
To determine the softening temperature of polystyrene.
Charpy Pendulum Impact Tester:
Determination of the brittleness or toughness of polystyrene( GPPS )
Izod Pendulum Impact:
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).
* Turbidity Meter
*Oil content analyzer
*Injection machine, Arburg,420 C-290 GE
forming a specific insert (plaques) from pellets for mechanical tests.
Detect the black spots and contamination of the final product.
