Laboratory services

We can help you identify your plastic and tell you what physical, chemical and mechanical properties the plastic has. AVL offers a wide range of relevant laboratory services that are performed by highly specialised staff.

Quality control

Regenerated plastics produced by Aage Vestergaard Larsen A/S is subject to a comprehensive quality control, where the traceability of the raw material is crucial. Quality control takes place before, during and after the production of the finished product. A sample is taken of each production unit and is used for the final quality approval. All samples are archived for a minimum of 3 years.

The laboratory analyses:

  • Mechanical properties:
    • Tensile test
    • Impact strength
  • Thermal properties:
    • DSC thermal analysis
    • DSC, oxidative analysis
  • Other equipment:
    • Desiccant
    • Vacuum dryer
    • Crusher

  • Physical properties:
    • MFI, melt flow properties
    • Density
    • Particle Distribution
    • Moisture measurement
  • Chemical composition:
    • FT-IR analysis
    • XRF analysis
  • Laboratory extruder for producing test compounds
  • Injection moulds for the production of test subjects

The level of quality control in connection with contract work is agreed with the customer. Several different types of analysis are used for quality control..

The safety data sheet describes the risk posed with working with the chemical or products. In this way, the safety data sheet must enable the user of the chemical or product to take the necessary precautions to ensure health and safety in the workplace. A safety data sheet must disclose hazards associated with the use of the chemical substance or product, which is described through 16 points relating to hazard labels, health, environment, first aid, fire and protective equipment.



REACH is the EU’s common chemical legislation (EC No 1097/2206). It aims to ensure that the chemicals used in the EU are documented with regard to human or environmental safety. REACH aims to ensure that the approx. 100,000 different types of chemicals used in the EU do not pose a danger to humans and the environment. REACH went into effect in 2007. It requires companies to register chemicals and imposes restrictions and prohibitions on chemicals.

REACH stands for:

  • R: Registration
  • E: Evaluation
  • A: Authorisation
  • of CH: Chemicals
