Analytical Tool for Quantification of Polymers
B&W Tek Inc announced its partnership with Gnosys Global Ltd. on the PolymerIQ, a solution for real-time, non-destructive identification and quantification of polymers.
By combining B&W Tek's high-resolution portable Raman spectrometer system, the i-Raman, with Gnosys' chemometric software, PolymerIQ, users can now perform multivariate statistical analysis to relate all available spectral information to the chemistry, properties, and metrics of interest with the click of a button.
Working together with major additive producers, Gnosys has developed PolymerIQ to deliver fast and accurate measurement of polymers and additives. This rapid analysis approach reduces the need for more laborious analytical methods and enables a more intelligent approach for the re-use of material test data. When utilized with the i-Raman, PolymerIQ's real-time, non-destructive polymer analysis is suited for introducing greater speed and cost efficiency into the routine inspection of master batches and compounds during production.
