Within the Thermo Scientific brand, a wide range of industries is served by the comprehensive line of Material Characterization solutions. Instruments like viscometers and rheometers help to characterize polymers, foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals or coatings concerning processability and temperature-related mechanical changes. Laboratory extruders and mixers support you in process modelling activities by processing polymers under real processing conditions. Twin-screw extruders can even compound small plastics quantities to simulate production processes. From Research & Development to Quality Control our customers are provided sound results on their products to become successful in their markets.
