Understanding the basic polymerization processes of your product is key to custom-tailor your polymer and plastics application with respect to energy and time efficiency as well as sustainability.
Thermo Scientific* rheometers enable you to monitor the curing kinetics as a function of time and temperature under controlled conditions, such as UV radiation or humidity.
Thermo Scientific* spectroscopy tools provide rapid, sensitive analyses for polymerizationreaction completeness, cross-linking, and morphologynon-destructively and without sample preparation. Designed to supply laboratory to production line support, these instruments offer great flexibility in solving your analytical challenges.
Combining Rheology and Spectroscopy
Dynamic rheometry and FT-IR spectroscopy can be employed simultaneously to monitor a structure development during the reactive processing of a sample and to detect interactions when used in parallel. This enables you to optimize your products by adapting formulations more quickly.
