Polymer Recycling Package


The PerkinElmer Polymer Recycling Package makes use of the most commonly-used techniques for material characterization and additionally supports Plastic Identification Codes (PIC), used worldwide for packaging applications.

When you download this Product Note - known as the PerkinElmer Polymer Recycling Package - you’ll access a 4-page breakdown of three key instruments, that you can purchase as a single package. Together, they help plastic recyclers tackle their most common testing requirements. The package consists of:

  1. the Polymer ID Analyzer Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) polymer analysis system
  2. the DSC 4000 Differential Scanning Calorimeter
  3. the TGA 4000 Thermogravimetric Analyzer

All three work effectively together to allow improved polymer identification and characterization for recycling. Material identification and characterization can be performed throughout the entire recycling process allowing for an in-depth understanding of the materials from start to finish. These include techniques for:

  • Raw Materials Identification
  • Polymer/Material Characterization
  • Mechanical and Thermal Characterization
