Control of Raw Material and Finished Products

Identification and characterization of raw material and finished products is an essential part of any production process.

Typical applications are:

  • Polymercharacterisation
  • Identification
  • Mechanical & thermal characteristics
  • Melting point
  • Crystalinity
  • Glass Transition Temperature
  • OIT – Oxidative Induction Times
  • Residual monomers/oligomers
  • Additive determination
  • Colour measurements

Simulation of Processes by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

The PerkinElmer HyperDSC technique is really the most effective and most sensitive DSC technique available for the characterization of both the crystalline and the amorphous phase of a polymeric system.

Polymers are often cooled down very fast during process (liquid --> solid), and the temperature of the polymer line as well as cooling rate are very important to control the polymer crystallinity. To mimic the process and understand what is happening in the production process a DSC is required, and has the ability to cool down fast enough. PerkinElmer offers the unique HyperDSC technology to mimic this kind of processes.

Analysis of Contaminants and Pollutants & Environmental Analysis

Manufacturing processes are designed to create products that contain only the required components and cause no negative effects on the environment.

Occasionally, foreign objects can appear within the final product as unexpected contaminations effecting product quality or even causing product failure. In addition some contaminates in polymers may be considered a pollutant or environmental hazzard, such as lead in toys or volatile organics.

Leveraging PerkinElmer's performance analytical instruments such as a IR, ICP or GC/MS can help you identify polymer contaminates and understand the risks. Typical applications are:

  • Contamination analysis
  • Microplastics
  • Elemental analysis
  • Emission analysis (Fogging, PAH, VOCs additives, softeners)

Recycling

Polymer recycling is a growing industry, as many bottles and containers that were once destined for landfills are now being recycled into new products. To ensure quality material for buyers, it’s essential the recycling industry is properly identifying the material it collects.

Typical applications are:

  • Polymercharacterisation
  • Thermal characteristics
  • Identification
  • Melting points
  • Tg
  • Crystalinity
  • Products and Services

  • Resources, Events & More
