Polymer Testing focuses on the testing, analysis and characterization of polymer materials, including both synthetic and natural or bio-based polymers. Novel testing methods and the testing of novel polymeric materials in bulk, solution and dispersion is covered. The use of polymers is so pervasive that nearly all industries have a need for polymer analysis either regularly or on an as-needed basis.
