Polymer Problem Solving with FT-IR Analysis
Watch this webinar and learn new ways to analyze the challenging polymer samples you may encounter in your daily work. This webinar explores some of the common, as well as more advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) analysis methods that are useful for QC control, testing, or deformulation studies required to solve difficult polymer materials problems. The applications presented in this webinar focus on Far-infrared and Near-infrared analysis techniques, as well as coupling an FT-IR spectrometer to thermogravimetric (TGA) instruments for particularly difficult polymer deformulation studies.
Using a Torque Rheometer for Materials Science
Successful polymer compound development and processing requires a full understanding of the material properties under investigation. A modular torque rheometer system capable of accommodating laboratory mixers, single and twin-screw extruders and is able to perform capillary rheology is best suited to meet the key challenges faced by research and development formulation scientists.
