SERMAG has equipped herself with an internal laboratory to analyse, study and develop compounds and mixes called “Laboratorio Materie Plastiche Circolari”.

The modern laboratory, shared with the network Sermag, is equipped with the most advanced instrument available on the market, necessary to catalogue the materials and to assure their conformity to the industry specifications and for the certification requirements.

The constant checks that are being performed on all the phases of the productive process allow the products to reach and satisfy the high-quality standard required by the clients and the technical-regulatory ones, required by the laws and regulations in force. They are also essential to assist the research and development of new materials and compounds.

The test reports, performed on every lot treated, allows clients to have a full and detailed view of the physical and mechanical properties and a guarantee on the quality of the material.

SERMAG is able to guarantee the absence of metals through an XRF analysis (x-ray spectrophotometry), the absence of phthalates and forbidden chemicals through an analysis with the gas chromatograph. Thanks to these tests, SERMAG can declare the conformity of all materials to the very demanding European regulations REACH and RoHS.

The “Laboratorio Materie Plastiche Circolari” is specialized in the classification and characterization of materials especially for what concerns the legal and regulatory framework, more specifically concerning the recycled polymers, a complicated sector in constant evolution.

The analyzes that can be carried out in Laboratorio Materie Plastiche Circolari are the following:



  • MFR (Melt mass-flow rate)
  • Density
  • Quantification of fillers by calcination in furnace



  • Determination of the bending elastic modulus
  • Determination of IZOD impact resistance
  • Determination of impact resilience CHARPY
  • Determination of the VICAT softening temperature



  • Polymeric composition by IR spectrometer
  • Polymeric Composition by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
  • Metal detection by XRF spectrophotometer
  • Phthalates detection by gas chromatograph
  • Detection of molecules and chemicals by gas chromatograph with mass spectrometer
