Materials Science Laboratory

Materials Science Laboratory
Using advanced instrumentation, Secant Group conducts analytical characterization of polymers, biomaterials and fibers to select the most appropriate material for a client’s application. Our Materials Science Lab is equipped with the latest analytical technology that examines polymer interface, mechanism of degradation, and polymer performance characteristics in real time. These capabilities enable the assessment of a variety of polymer performance characteristics, including:
  • Physical structure
  • Chemical composition
  • ​Absorption rate
  • Surface hardness
  • Thermal morphological changes
Examples of material combinations that can be evaluated in our lab include coatings, partially absorbable materials, and controlled-release materials.
