Polymers are used across industry in an ever widening set of products and subassemblies. As synthesized materials, their properties, performance and longevity are directly related to achieving proper composition and structure. These materials have finite lifetimes, which are directly related to environmental affects, additives and stabilizers and overall usage.
When accuracy and reliability in measuring the quality and chemical composition of plastics and polymers is critical to your success, choose Agilent. By providing industry leading technologies and instruments like GPC/SEC, FTIR mobile, bench and microscopy systems and Polymer Grade GC Analyzers, we provide you with powerful tools for detailed polymer characterization. Agilent also offers a new FTIR analyzer, the 4500 Polymer ID Package, which enables analysts to determine in seconds the chemical composition of a polymer and meets the critical need to screen for banned or restricted phthalates.
