Failure mode analysis
Handling and processing complex two-component materials can be very difficult. EFI Polymers has worked with manufacturing companies in a wide range of industries to identify why parts are failing and helped identify low-cost solutions that alleviate the issue. Our technical resource team is capable of on-site analysis and in some cases mirroring your manufacturing process in house to understand how and why the failure is occurring.
Trapped air and cracking
Moisture contamination (Karl Fisher titration)
Thermal analysis (DSC, TGA, TMA, thermal cycling)
Adhesive and cohesive failure (Inston mechanical analyses)
Electrical properties (dielectric constant, dissipation, resistivity)
