competent & independent
Accredited test laboratory
The accredited testing laboratory of the KUZ has been continuously accredited according to DIN EN ISO 17025 by the DAkkS since 1991. Combined with our experience of more than 60 years of plastics testing according to international and national standards, we are at your service as an competent partner for plastics testing in our plastics testing laboratory. The flexible accreditation allows us to respond flexibly to your analysis requests. Additionally, other national and international standards as well as OEM or manufacturer standards can be included in our accredited range after successful verification.
Qualified and experienced engineers and technicians are pleased to solve your testing tasks. They may also include our technical and technological know-how in plastics processing technologies. Our egineers are experts in their testing field and they are actively participate in international standardization committees. As a sign of our competence, we also advise leading interlaboratory test providers on the qualification of interlaboratory tests to be performed. Our testing laboratory is equipped with modern testing devices. Our analytical methods include mechanical, thermal, rheological, electrical, optical, metric testing, environmental simulation and fire testing.
Contact us! We will take time for your questions, even if you do not find your delivery specification in our selected standard examples.

Rheology and thermal analysis
The description of the material properties of plastics is essential for the design of processing procedures and for quality assurance. Rheometric investigations can be used to characterize the flow and deformation behavior of thermoplastic polymers and to better understand their structure-viscosity behavior during processing. The test methods of thermal analysis open up the possibility of identifying relationships between processing conditions, microstructure and material properties of plastics. In this way, polymers can be identified and processing-related material damage can be detected. In this seminar, the theoretical fundamentals of rheology and thermal analysis are combined with practical demonstrations of the equipment in the laboratory and pilot plant. Concrete application examples from the practice of the accredited testing laboratory at the KUZ will be used to show what information can be obtained from the recorded measurement curves.
