Halogens in polymer by Combustion Ion Chromatography

Polymer materials that are used for building and decoration purposes need to be flame resistant. To reach the required level of resistance flame-retardants are added to the plain polymer. Flame-retardants are often haloorganic compounds. The use of such components and the respective concentration of introduced halogens can be determined by Combustion IC. The recovery over the full system is tested with a
certified reference material (CRM).
