Finally, the First Commercial Thermoformed Bottles
December 11, 2014
For decades an incredible amount of inventiveness has been thrown at the challenge of trying to thermoform bottles. The idea was that making bottles out of thin sheet would save 20% to 50% in materials over extrusion blow molding with lower energy, higher output, and easy material and color changes—including barrier—just by changing a roll. Over the years probably a half dozen ingenious technologies were patented, built, announced, and some even exhibited at major trade shows, without ultimately making a commercial bottle.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.
