Unique New XPLOR™ Dry Emulsifiers Provide Performance And Efficiency
November 25, 2014
Georgia-Pacific Chemicals introduces the new XPLOR™ line of dry emulsifiers that combine performance with operational benefits in terms of efficiency and total use costs. XPLOR™ dry emulsifiers have demonstrated performance in diesel, mineral oil or synthetic-based drilling fluids. They are compatible with a variety of solvents thus reducing the need to purchase multiple types of emulsifiers.

First Melting with a Flighted Barrel!
November 11, 2014
Two papers given at the Society of Plastics Engineers’ ANTEC 2014 Conference April 28-30 in Las Vegas, NV, describe the development by Volkswagen AG in Wolfsburg, Germany, of what is believed to be the first automated process to mass produce finished thermoplastic car body parts. The technology is also likely to be the first multi-process injection molding of a cosmetic exterior car part. It combines thermoplastic injection molding, physical foaming, and two-component PU injection molding in one complex tool. VW isn’t talking about small series production either. This is intended for “large scale production” of parts like hoods, spoilers, and mirror housings,possibly as early as next year.View More Blog Entries
Polymer Problem Solving with FT-IR Analysis
Attend this webinar and learn new ways to analyze the challenging polymer samples you may encounter in your daily work. This webinar will explore some of the common, as well as more advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) analysis methods that are useful for QC control, testing, or deformulation studies required to solve difficult polymer materials problems. The applications presented in this webinar will focus on Far-infrared and Near-infrared analysis techniques, as well as coupling an FT-IR spectrometer to thermogravimetric (TGA) instruments for particularly difficult polymer deformulation studies. Some of the topics discussed in this webinar include:
• Using Far Infrared to analyze inorganic additives
• Combine Raman with FT-IR to get more information on orientation and additives
• Classification of polymers with Near-infrared analysis
• FT-IR coupled to TGA for deformulation studies
FT-IR spectroscopy is a widely used technique for laboratory and industrial analysis throughout the polymer industry. We will show how flexible the Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iS™50 FT-IR spectrometer can be in developing data and analyzing polymer samples.
