Contamination in polymers can cause a variety of problems which can include product failure, undesirable aesthetics, or the product falling out of specification. Each of these consequences can cause a manufacturer to lose revenue, and can damage reputations and have long-term negative repercussions. Therefore, performing the proper contamination analysis, with the required equipment and expertise, is critical.
Chem-Bac Laboratories works with our customers to isolate and identify suspected contaminants at trace and ultra-trace levels within their polymers or manufacturing processes. Our scientists and engineers have experience with all types of contaminants including powders, particulate, solvents, lubricants, inorganics, and degradation byproducts. Once the identity of the contaminant is known, our experts will help you determine the possible source or cause of the contaminant.
We understand that time is critical in any contamination situation. Your time, money, and reputation are at stake. This is why we specialize in rapid response problem solving, lasting solutions and unparalleled client support across many manufacturing sectors, products and markets.
