  • Investing in customer value

    Since 2014, Nynas has had a laboratory at the University of Antwerp. This January the equipment was augmented with a new, advanced rheometer. This makes it possible to conduct all standard rheological tests in a temperature range from -30°C to 200°C. The new rheometer also has an especially high torque, which means that it can exert a high stress on the sample.
