  1. The Spectroscopy Section
  2. The Thermal Analysis Section
  3. The Microscopy Section
  4. The Chromatography Section
  5. The Physical Properties Section
  6. The Mechanical Properties Section
  7. The Rheological Properties Section
  8. The Osmometery Section
  9. The Laser Section
  10. The Electrical Properties Section
  11. The X-Ray Analysis Section
  12. The Service and Maintenance Workshop
  13. The Glass Blowing Workshop
  14. The major objective and scope activities of the Analysis Department are as follows:

1.To analyze polymers by instrumental and chemical methods

2.To identify various unknown polymers (Rubber, Plastics, Composites, Adhesives, ...)

3.To provide technical services to industry and implement short-time contracts

4.To run long-time projects

5.To collaborate with current projects at IPPI

6.To set up workshops for training the industrial polymer chemists and engineer specialists

7.To service and maintain all epuipments in the IPPI
