Plastics & Composites

EMSL Analytical, Inc. offers efficacy testing of your plastics and composites. It is common for certain applications to use antimicrobials in a plastic or composite to reduce germs and other bacteria that can be transmitted by use of the material. EMSL can determine the efficacy of the formulation to ensure you are meeting your desired reduction of these microbes. Test methods can include ISO 22196, JIS Z2801 and ASTM E2180. Depending on where the material is used it may need to withstand degradation and attack from microbes as well, e.g. when in contact with soil. ASTM G21/G22 and D3273 are applicable methods we offer for testing.
