KnowHow Webinar: Applications of FTIR in Polymer Process Development
10 December 2020 (Thursday) / Schedule: 10 am (ET) (US Time)
Webinar Length: ~ 60 Minutes / Speaker: Dr. Anthony Parker
FTIR spectroscopy is a powerful technique for studying the effects of polymer formulation and process factors on surface chemistry, component compatibility, and morphology; all of which relate to end-use performance characteristics like adhesion and mechanical properties. Of the many techniques available, surface attenuated total reflectance spectroscopy (SATR-FTIR) is arguably one of the most versatile FTIR methods, enabling the study of neat liquids, solutions, dispersions, solid films, solid powders, adhesives, adherends, and countless other multi-component systems. Aside from being fast, SATR can be applied in problem-solving situations pertaining to cure reactions (liquid and dispersion states), surface compositions & adhesion, process history & surface heterogeneity (e.g., extruded films), material structure, and product/process control. This seminar, although focused on SATR, will be the first in a series pertaining to applications of spectroscopic methods in product and process development. Those attending can expect to learn how SATR-FTIR can be applied to their own real-world product development & problem-solving situations. The webinar presentation includes: • Overview of FTIR spectroscopy & methods; • Description of the SATR technique; • Example Applications – Adhesion, Surface migration, Extruded film heterogeneity, Polymerization reactions, Material structure & composition
