Polymer Analysis with TD-NMR

Polymer Analysis with TD-NMR

Polymer Analysis with TD-NMR TD-NMR (time domain NMR) is a fast and reliable method of analysing the physical and chemical properties of polymers, plastics and rubbers. The technique can be used in all steps of production: Raw material / educt characterisation Polymerisation / reaction kinetics Raw / unmodified polymer analysis Final product analysis and quality control The […]

Polymer Additives Surface Blooming Identification using AFM-IR

Polymer Additives Surface Blooming – AFM-IR Paper

Diagnosing Surface Blooming of Polymer Additives Additives impart improved performance characteristics in polymer systems such as anti-oxidation, lubrication and UV protection. Surface blooming of additives can alter the bulk and surface properties of the material, leading to a range of undesirable outcomes from mechanical failure to cross contamination. For plastics in medical devices, changes of […]
