Plenco's Materials Engineering Laboratory, with a staff of experienced technicians and engineers, utilizes a broad range of equipment and test instrumentation to provide technical support for our customers.

Compounding capabilities include laboratory equipment for materials formulation development. Additional pilot plant equipment is used for sampling and scale-up evaluation.

Compression, transfer, injection, and injection-compression process capabilities are used for molding test specimens, customer prototyping, and trouble-shooting molds. Also available is auxiliary equipment such as preformers, preplasticizers, and preheaters.

Testing capabilities measure flammability, color-matching, and environmental exposure. Dynamic fatigue, short-term creep, Poisson's ratio, and other material characterizations are tested per ASTM, ISO, JIS, and UL standards.

Plenco's Materials Engineering Laboratory has established quality programs for proficiency training, continuous improvement, and instrument calibration.
