Polymer Characterization S.A.


Polymer Char is devoted to the development of state-of-the-art instrumentation for Polyolefin Analysis.

The company offers the broadest and most modern range of instruments and services for polymer analysis and more specifically, for structural characterization of polyolefins, such as Molar Mass Distribution - GPC/SEC (GPC-IR, GPC One), Chemical Composition Distribution (CRYSTAF, TREF, CEF), Bivariate Distribution by Cross-Fractionation Chromatography (CFC), High Temperature HPLC (TGIC, SGIC 2D), Xylene Solubles (CRYSTEX), Preparative Fractionation (PREP mc2) or Infrared Detection (IR4, IR5 MCT).

Polymer Char is also well known for its advanced approach into virtual instrumentation software that, together with excellent remote control capabilities and its strong commitment to Customer success, places the company at the leading edge on instrumentation diagnostics and technical support.

Polymer Char, together with its global network of partners and distributors, supplies, trains and supports Customers worldwide. The company provides analytical services in 35 countries and its instruments are present today in over 20 countries within the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific, predominantly serving to Polymer Producers and Processors, Government and Academic Research Laboratories, Contract Research Organizations, Analytical and Testing Laboratories and Chemical Instrumentation Manufacturers.

In the last two decades and with an average annual investment of 30% of its manpower resources on R&D, Polymer Char has played a key-role in the development of most of the existing polyolefin characterization technologies, such as CRYSTAF, CRYSTEX, CEF, CFC or GPC with IR detection. Each new project, each new analysis, makes clearer Polymer Char recognition as The Polyolefin Characterization Company.
