Polymers

Whether PE (polyethylene), PVC (polyvinyl chloride), PP (polypropylene) or biopolymers – plastics have become indispensable in today’s life. They are found in multiple applications such as shampoo bottles, toys, automotive parts, in medicine, or in the aerospace industry.

It is essential to know characteristics such as melting point, glass transition, crystallinity, thermal stability and aging, in order to be able to select the right polymer for the respective application. This knowledge helps to understand the peculiarities of raw materials and end products. This is an important prerequisite for optimizing the production processes and achieving the specifications required for the end use.

Polymers are generally divided into three main groups:

  • thermoplastics
  • thermosets
  • elastomers

The thermal properties of all these plastics can be determined with the support of thermoanalytical measurement systems from Linseis. They can be used in product development as well as in process optimization, quality assurance, and damage analysis.

Due to its versatility and informative value, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is currently the most commonly used thermal analysis method in the plastics sector. In addition, for the polymer industry, LINSEIS offers other high-quality measuring instruments such as heating microscopes, optical dilatometers, Light Flash Analyzer for thermal conductivity determination or the world’s only pressure dilatometer.
