Particle size analysis in the range 0.01-3500 microns. For nanoparticle analysis see dedicated section.
Polymers have been utilized as essential components of commodities for a very long time. From naturally occurring products like rubber, cotton and linen, to various synthetic compounds, polymers have been used broadly in the modern world. They include stationery, textile, packaging, toys, automotive, aircraft and construction sectors.
Polymers are engineered to achieve certain characteristics including high strength, toughness, resilience, resistance to corrosion, lack of conductivity (heat and electrical), color, transparency, processing and low cost. Depending on the application, material characterizations and control may require the measurement of molecular weight and branching of polymers, the measurement of particle size and morphology of raw materials, both the primary and residual concentration of monomers in an end-product.
The significance of polymer analysis cannot be understated. It is important for quality control, research and development and failure analysis in a vast range of industrial and commercial applications.
