  1. I don’t know what techniques you use to determine delamination but you may want to check out our OptiGauge. We measure multilayer structures including glass and plastic products. We’ve investigated delamination issues with vials and other products. http://www.lumetrics.com/glass.html. The OptiGauge may be a useful tool for your testing.
