Conventional wet chemistry technologies for QA/QC of polyols tend to be time consuming. Usually, sample preparation is required prior to analysis, which involves the use of hazardous chemicals. In a free webinar on June 13, Dr. Omar Sallouh, Head of Quality Assurance & Process Engineering at Rampf Polymer Solutions GmbH & Co. KG presents Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) as a faster and safer approach for quality testing of polyols, isocyanates, and silicones.
Dr. Sallouh is joined by Dr. Nicolas Rühl from Metrohm AG, who will start the webinar with a short introduction to this technology focusing on the potential to reduce the costs of routine analytics in the QC laboratory. The event closes with a Q&A session to address any questions asked during and after the webinar.
Key learnings of this webinar:
- The official guidelines (norms & standards) for the analysis of polyols by NIRS
- The basic principles of NIRS and how this technology is implemented in the QC laboratory
- First-hand experiences focusing on the benefits and challenges of NIRS for routine analytics of polyols, isocyanates, and silicones
