Abstract: This report presents the results of an inter-laboratory comparison on the identification of the composition of multilayer plastic packaging films organised by the EURL-FCM, Ispra (Italy). The exercise represents a follow-up to ILC002 2013 on the identification of plastic polymers. Participants had to determine the layer composition of three different multilayer plastic packaging films which were obtained from an Italian packaging producer. Although only few laboratories were able to fully identify the comprehensive set of compositions for complex multilayers ( i.e. inclusive of adhesive layers), the majority was able to identify most of the plastic layers and to characterise the respective polymer types correctly. All in all the laboratory performance improved compared to ILC002 2013 and was judged satisfactory considering the complexity of such materials.
