Testing Versatility

PSI (together with Whitford, its parent company) has a remarkably extensive Quality Control and Development Laboratory. This is an area where, as a private company (with no disinterested shareholders to question the expense), PSI has been able to set itself apart from the competition. We have equipment capable of measuring:

  • Water content
  • Grind particle size
  • Viscosity
  • Extrusion rates
  • Thixotropy and work life.
  • Tack-free time
  • Tensile strength
  • Shear adhesion
  • Peel adhesion
  • Hardness
  • Modulus
  • Accelerated weathering.

Additional lab capabilities range from complete computerized color-matching to contact-angle measurement. Among the lab equipment available for specialized testing are:

  • TA Instruments R200 Rheometer
  • Horiba Particle Size Analyzer
  • Gas Chromatograph
  • Dynisco Melt-Flow
  • Fourier Transfer Infra-red
  • Spectrophotometer.
