  • Plastics Consultancy Network - Analysis of plastics
    DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) or DTA which gives you the melting points or gelation and sometimes the glass transition Tg, which is when the material softens from being a plastic into a rubber or elastomer. Only a few milligrams are needed in a sample pan which can be open, closed
  • Melting the end of a plastic tube to create a seal
    Induction is used with a single turn coil encapsulated in custom blocks sealing the tube. Two tubes are placed between the coil blocks and a 7lb (3.2kg) load is applied to the top of the coil.
