Rubber and Plastics, a section of Analytical Science Division
of GIRDA, is engaged in testing and research in the field of
Polymers comprises broad spectrum of materials including
Plastics, Rubber, Resins and Fibers. They find application in
various sectors of life from domestic to strategic
applications. Testing and characterization of polymers are
important to assess the quality and performance of materials
and products made of them. We offer broad range of testing and
research services to customers from various sectors.
Product/Raw material manufacturing industries that want
to test their Product or Raw material for
certification, research, identification of the nature
or composition of competitors/market-picked products.
Govt. agencies/Independent agencies who want to ensure
the quality of incoming materials.
Research organizations that want to characterize
materials for research.
Consulting services for the diagnosis and technical
evaluation of processes and products, solution of
problems in situ.
Characterization of polymeric materials.
Research & development projects.
Contractual projects for troubleshooting, problem
solving and technology development.
Development of new testing facilities/methods as per
Quality control testing and certification.
