SEM-EDS can be used to characterise the composition of polymer composites. This is useful in failure analysis, to detect and identify contaminants and defects, and to check homogeneity.
How nanoscale infrared spectroscopy can be used to measure semiconductor materials in defect and contamination analysis, and fabrication.
How Bruker have accelerated AFM without compromising image quality – with examples of screening, dynamics and surveying an overview of your sample.
Breakthrough technique for identifying contaminants in failure analysis and process control, using O-PTIR.
How to analyse microplastic particles with Raman spectroscopy. Identify polymers and measure size, shape and composition with the Renishaw Invia Raman microscope.
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 […]
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 […]
