Expert Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) analysis for packaging materials and products including polyesters such as PET, PEN, polyolefins and more.

Packaging testing by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is essential in regard to determination of product integrity and as part of gaining understanding into expectations of industry specifications. NMR expertise includes polymer characterisation, development of polymer process chemistry and product development. 

Analysis of packaging materials by NMR helps clients determine and understand the composition and formulation of packaging materials. Decisions can be made for next steps in the development process based on the results.

Our expert NMR Polymer analysis of packaging materials includes

  • Polyesters: PET, PEN plus Aliphatic Acid Polyesters. Products include Bottles, Food Trays and Films providing Structural Information, Co-monomer levels and end group analysis
  • Polyolefines: HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE. Heat Resistant Food Trays, Bottle Tops and Cartons etc including Composition, Branching and Sequencing of the Polymer Chain
  • Vinyl Based Materials: PVC, EVA. Bottles, Detergent Containers and Clothing Bags Compositional Information and Plasticiser Levels
