Plastic products accompany us through the day

In the morning when we get up in the form of hygiene articles, high-quality textiles in bed linen and clothing, throughout the day in means of transport, on roads and paths, in heated or cooled buildings with clever building technology, running water and waste water through piping systems and fittings, energy supply through power cables and wind turbines, in high-tech products such as wearables, hearables or medical technology, in our leisure time through sports products or playgrounds, right up to brushing our teeth in the evening.

This range of different applications for plastic products places different demands on the quality and safety of the products. Due to its extensive technical equipment and experienced staff, the SKZ test laboratory is able to test a wide variety of products with regard to their quality, properties and usability.
