Improving efficiency of quality control for polymers
20-9-2021

Free webinar shows how to optain multiple key parameters within one minute using near-infrared spectroscopy

Typically, many different instruments and technologies are used for the quality control and product screening 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, Wim Guns, Sales Support Manager and Maria Angeles Cartes Dominguez (both from Metrohm AG) will demonstrate how polymer manufacturers and processors can use near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR spectroscopy) to consolidate their quality control by determining multiple physical and chemical parameters all at once in less than one minute without any sample preparation. They are joined by Clara Van Roeyen, Quality Control Engineer at Kuraray EVAL Europe. Clara will show how the world’s largest producer of Ethylene Vinyl-Alcohol Copolymers (EVOH) implemented NIR spectroscopy to reduce time per analysis by 90%.

The webinar takes place on October 6, 2021 at 10 a.m. EDT / 4 p.m. CEST. 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 of key quality parameters e.g., intrinsic viscosity, melt flow rate, moisture, and ethylene content of EVOH
