Plastics Engineering Webinar

Join us for this complimentary webinar:  Polymer Problem Solving with FT-IR Analysis

Watch this webinar and learn new ways to analyze the challenging polymer samples you may encounter in your daily work. This webinar explores 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 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.
