Application Note

Advanced Data Analysis of Evolved Gases from TG-IR Hyphenation Studies of Polymers

The combination of Thermogravimetric Analysis with Infrared Spectroscopy (TG-IR) is the most common type of evolved gas analysis. Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) accurately measures the percentage weight loss of a sample as a function of temperature, but does not provide any information regarding the chemical composition of the evolved gases. Additionally, IR alone is not always sufficient for detecting the presence of components at low concentrations. This application note describes the development of a spectral library of TG-IR weight losses for polymers as well as the use of library-searching techniques for the identification of polymers and evolved gases from simple and more complex polymer formulations.

Characterization of Polymers using TGA Application Note

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is one of the members of the family of thermal analysis techniques used to characterize a wide variety of materials. TGA provides complimentary and supplementary characterization information to the most commonly used thermal technique, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). PerkinElmer offers a variety of high performance TGA instruments encompassing a wide range of application needs and operational requirements. The extended capabilities of the PerkinElmer TGA, as a valuable tool for polymeric characterization and quality assurance are demonstrated by these applications.

Plasticizer Characterization by TG-IR Application Note

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a common technique that is used to study the weight loss during heating. It can tell you the percentage of weight loss quantitatively and accurately. But TGA alone will not tell you anything about the chemical components of the evolved off gas. The hyphenation between TGA and FT-IR is able to identify the off gas from TGA and give a more complete picture of material characterization. The TG-IR hyphenation technique has been widely used for the polymer industry. This application note demonstrates how to combine the strength of TGA and FT-IR analysis to offers a more comprehensive material characterization.
