MFI Testing

Teel Lab Invests in MFI Machine.

The Melt Flow Index (MFI) instrument measures melt flow of a material under pressure and provides great information for injection molding and extrusion operations. 

MFI values are used to evaluate different polymer grades, which is important in determining what material to use in your processes. 

On a fundamental level, the test is an indication of molecular weight and the viscosity of the material with an applied force. Teel Analytical Laboratories will follow ASTM D1238, methods A and B, for moderate and high flow materials.

Whether you’re looking for thermal analysis to do process improvements to a production line or need testing for failure analysis of products, Teel’s laboratory will be here to provide the information you need!
