YPSILANTI, MI – CAS-MI Laboratories has extended its coating and polymer problem-solving capabilities with the purchase of two new state-of-the-art instruments, reflecting the company’s commitment to provide accurate and reliable solutions to the paint, coatings and polymer industries.
CAS-MI’s paint and coatings analytical experts specialize in deformulation (reverse engineering), material and contaminant identification. With the acquisition of a new gas chromatograph/mass selective detector (GC/MSD), CAS-MI’s scientists can better identify and quantify volatile components, in addition to enhancing reliability and lowering detection limits when analyzing complex matrices. With a better understanding of coatings’ components, CAS-MI’s staff offers solutions to difficult issues such as product failures or competitive product investigations.
In addition, CAS-MI Laboratories recently installed a multi-functional pyrolysis system, enhanced with a new microbalance. CAS-MI’s plastic and polymer experts can now better characterize and quantify product’s components and additives from as small as 50 micrograms.
