New equipment for Fogging test
To determine the fogging behavior of materials used in vehicle interiors, we replaced our existing test equipment with new equipment in march 2021.
In the test procedure according to DIN 75201, specimens are exposed to a test temperature for a defined time. The emitted substances, which condense on a cooled aluminum foil, are recorded gravimetrically.
Within the new test device from company Barkey the test specimen are heated by direct contacting method. With this innovative process a test specimen heating by a heat transfer fluid can be dispensed with.
The heat transfer fluid is a hazardous substance that requires extensive protective procedures for employees to ensure safe laboratory work. In addition, residues of the heat transfer fluid which are sticking on the tempering glasses get into wastewater while the dishwashing process.
We are always at the forefront when it comes to occupational safety and environmental protection. For this reason we have replaced our previous equipment with the new permatherm from Barkey.
After successful reaccreditation we have the accreditation certificate according to ISO / IEC 17025:2018
We got the updated accreditation certificate, which confirms that our company and laboratory processes meet the requirements of DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025:2018. All details can be found on the Quality page.
polymerphys IK conducts workshop in the SIBUR PolyLab
On December 18-19, 2019, polymerphys IK held a practical workshop on the specifics of polymer mechanical testing. The event was held at the SIBUR Polylab site in SKOLKOVO, Moscow, Russia. Students from several production companies received certificates of successful completion of the training.
polymerphys IK is present at the testXpo
From 14 to 17 October 2019, the 28th testxpo trade fair for testing technology take place at ZwickRoell in Ulm.
Together with 25 co-exhibitors ZwickRoell presents the latest news in the field of material testing. Machine technology, Software, data processing, quality management are the topics that visitors can discuss with specialists from ZwickRoell and the co-exhibitors.
Practical test procedures are demonstrated on a variety of exhibits. Specialist lectures complete the scope of the event.
We present ourselves with our new mobile testing machine MobiZwicki. In addition, we explain in two lectures the possibility of analyzing fiber lengths in structural components.
We look forward to your visit.
polymerphys IK GmbH is 10 years old
On July 26th, 2017 polymerphys IK GmbH celebrated its 10th anniversary with business friends.
polymerphys IK is expanding its involvement in Russia
After the first successful workshop on plastics tests and the applicable ISO test standards for over 40 interested parties in April 2016 in Nizhni Novgorod, polymerphys IK is expanding its involvement in Russia.
In March 2017, customers were trained in the field of mechanical plastic testing in St. Petersburg.
And from April 25th to April 27th, 2017 Knut Laumen was hired by ASTM International to train the application of ASTM test standards at SIBUR - one of Russia's leading chemical companies - in their laboratories at the research site in Tomsk.
Further workshops took place on October 5th, 2017 in Tolyatti for around 50 interested parties from the Russian automotive industry.
