Industry: Automotive Manufacturing
Problem: Peeling & breakage on an automobile bumper
Service: Product Failure Analysis.
Solution: An auto manufacturer noticed that layers were peeling off and breaking from an automobile bumper. The bumper was comprised of a variety of polymer types. Our skilled chemists examined the separation of polymer layers with a high-resolution microscopy to identify the location of the separation and performed a detailed chemical analysis of the area.
Our chemists discovered a problem with the way the polymers were compiled and that the polymers were not fully blending properly. Further analysis through our FTIR revealed no compatibilizer was in the failed product.
Our scientists helped them to reformulate their product with a compatibilizer which solved their product failure issue.
