Automotive plastics perceptivity tests include:

Scratch resistancecustomer specific methods
GlossDIN 67530
Haze / TransmissionASTM D1003A
FoggingDIN 75201 e.a.
Coating adherence number of methods available
UV-resistance number of methods available
Volatile Organic Components (VOC) PV3341, VDA 277, customer specific methods
Vapour beamcustomer specific methods

Further capabilities include 60T and 320T injection moulding facilities, which are set up in a controlled laboratory environment for research projects (eg. testing optimal screw and screw/cylinder combinations) and injection moulding of real size automotive components which gives the opportunity to test materials in an very early stage in its final form.

Intertek operates high-tech analytical lab testing facilities and methods for testing additives and fillers in performance enhancers:

Intertek laboratories operate under the relevant quality standards incl. ISO9001:2000 and ISO 17025 accreditation for many tests.
