Nylon Characterization Technology Package GPC + DSV + FIPA
Nylon (a generic name for a family of polyamides) is a widely used thermoplastic polymer that can be found in fabrics, carpets, strings/ropes, construction, automotive and house-ware items. Perhaps the most famous application is the woman’s stockings commonly referred to as nylons. To help precisely control the physical properties, processability and performance characteristics of this highly versatile material, Nylon manufacturers and end-users have put extra emphasis on the measurements of molecular weight distribution and structural characteristics. Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) also known as Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC), Flow Injection Polymer Analysis (FIPA) and Dilute Solution Viscosity (DSV) are the most common analytical techniques providing such vital and complementary information. This webinar will discuss how these techniques are being used in the measurement of molecular weight distribution, structure and viscosity of these materials.
