Relevant for those who want to know about composition or nature of a polymer material, component, a contamination or a chemical attack.

For polymers and elastomers being raw materials, compounds or used in products the following techniques are available:

  • (Fourier Transform) Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR, with more than 200,000 reference spectra) andATR, Diffusion reflection, Pyrolysis-FTIR
  • Gas chromatography (GC), also combined with mass spectrometry (GC-MS);
  • Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC);
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), also combined with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX or EDS);
  • High Pressure Liquid Chromatogrphy (HPLC);
  • Thermo gravimetric Analysis (TGA).

In all cases where information about the composition of polymeric materials and products is needed.

Please contact us for more information.
