Odour analysis of plastics
It’s widely known that some plastics emit odours, which may be of concern in confined spaces such as inside vehicles and buildings, and where toys and food packaging are concerned.
How can we help?
Odournet’s comprehensive emission testing services can analyse odours using standardised methods for both sensory and molecular evaluation. We can carry out analysis of raw materials, additives and final products, and for the purpose of:
- product development and improvement (e.g. formulation, changes in manufacturing process, supplier control, benchmark analysis)
- quality assurance (e.g. odour control, off-odour detection).
There are different ways of processing and evaluating sample material. We can help you choose the most appropriate method, based on your industry and the plastic’s intended use.
Need to know more?
Odournet offers a number of standard methods for emission testing of plastics (e.g. ISO 16000-28, VDA 270), but also customised product test designs. Contact us for more information, or to discuss your specific requirements.
