QC Lab

S&E Specialty Polymers maintains a state of the art quality control laboratory capable of testing to various ASTM, ISO, UL and other publicized standards.  Our laboratory includes a separate environmental room capable of meeting strict temperature and humidity control.  Most of our compound’s physical properties are conditioned and tested by qualified laboratory technicians using calibrated automated test equipment located in this environmental room.  This provides confidence that our testing is consistent from technician to technician and from order to order.

Where required, our quality lab can provide accelerated weathering testing using our Atlas Xenon Weatherometer.  This simulated testing can provide confidence that our compounds will pass exterior weathering applications in a fraction of the time involved in actual exterior weathering.
