Chemicals, Petrochemicals, Plastics, and Polymers
A portion of refined crude and synthetic oils, as well as derivatives from natural gas processing, are used as feedstocks in polymer, plastic, and rubber production. Such products are ubiquitous in modern life, with uses in vehicles, electronics, toys, clothing, among others. Chemical and physical testing of these products is critical to ensure their purity, safety, performance, and utility. Shimadzu offers a variety of solutions to assess the chemical and physical properties of these products
