Getting the Hard Answers on Epoxy using GC-HS-MS


In the CASE category of chemicals, epoxy resins are used in multiple industries due to their application versatility, like their ability to be designed as adhesives or for coating applications. Epoxy resins are formulated to withstand high temperature applications, they are moisture and chemical resistant, have a high degree of flexibility, and strong adhesive strength properties for binding an array of materials together. This mini webinar demonstrates that common epoxies can be effectively analyzed by GC/MS-HS as well as the identification and quantitation of the off-gasing that occurs. In this instance the amount of off-gasing that was measured correlated to the quality of the epoxy.
