USING ANALYTICAL DATA TO INVESTIGATE POLYMER MATERIALS
|Date Published||February 4, 2008|
The properties of plastic and rubber materials are influenced by the base polymer components, the fillers, and the additives. Commercial polymer products, including rubber materials, can lack ingredients they should contain and can include ingredients that were not an intended part of the composition. Analytical methods that can scientifically verify formulation compositions will be presented in a case study format. The presentation should be useful to engineers, scientists, and business professionals who are concerned with the constituents of plastic and rubber materials.
