Be confident in the consistency and quality of your products
Avoid downstream complications and solve engineering failures through simple, effective material evaluation along the manufacturing line. Agilent chromatography portfolios, dedicated analyzers, and FTIR imaging systems allow you to:
Ensure monomer and solvent quality for incoming raw materials
Analyze raw material content for additives and comonomers
Test blend ratios and additive content during QA/QC
What’s more, you can confirm the identity and composition of your polymer pellets—before the shipment is unloaded—using Agilent mobile FTIR instruments.
Consumer product regulations are on the rise, which means your company must comply with multiple tests and specifications measures concerning additives and plasticizers. Agilent can help you:
Ensure product safety and end-use durability
Monitor for migrant species
Screen for phthalates in plastics
Test for impurities and contaminants
In addition to our comprehensive elemental analysis portfolio and market-leading GC/MS, Agilent offers a mobile FTIR analyzer that lets you identify phthalate content directly on the manufacturing line—or at the port.
Fast, reliable identification both in and out of the lab
Whether you need to assess polymer sorting classification at the sample site… or perform in-depth separation and quantification in the lab… Agilent has what you’re looking for. Our comprehensive portfolio allows you to:
Identify polymer classes in seconds—even black polymers
Efficiently analyze additives and contaminants
Precisely measure extractables and leachables
Perform confident elemental analysis
Our handheld and mobile FTIR instruments enable quick, onsite identification of contaminants, while advanced GPC/SEC and atomic spectroscopy systems allow you to perform reliable trace-level analysis.
Characterize polymer laminates—with no sample preparation
Identify contaminants or diagnose engineering complications with the Agilent FTIR Imaging 620 system. You can also analyze polymer laminates and films at microscopic levels without the need for sample preparation.
Efficiently measure metals in your polymers with Agilent atomic spectroscopy technologies, such as ICP-OES and ICP-MS. Take it even a step further and analyze volatile organometallic compounds with Agilent’s GC-ICP-MS workflows.
