Webinar shows how to obtain multiple key parameters within one minute using near-infrared spectroscopy

Typically, many different instruments and procedures are used for the quality control of polymers. The determination of each individual parameter requires a specific instrument and procedure, which can be both costly and time-consuming. In this webinar, Andreas Agerer, Application Specialist at Metrohm AG and Dave van Staveren from Metrohm AG will demonstrate how polymer manufacturers can use near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR spectroscopy) to determine multiple physical and chemical parameters all at once in less than one minute without any sample preparation. They are joined by Tien Pham, Sr. Lab Manager for Quality Control at Qenos.  He will show how Australia’s exclusive PE manufacturer implemented NIR spectroscopy to significantly improve its PE production process.

The webinar takes place on September 10, 2020 at 10 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Participants will learn:

  • How NIR spectroscopy works and its background 
  • The key benefits of using NIR spectroscopy in the polymer market, and its limitations
  • How to implement this technology as per ASTM E1665
  • Selected application examples on key quality parameters e.g., viscosity, moisture, and hydroxyl value
