Ruston Services has identified a need within the scientific community for a series of polymers and other materials of known and characterised behaviour by DSC, TGA and FTIR. A series of 14 individual polymer types and two filler materials have been prepared into a kit of approximately 10g of each material packed in individual containers.
Each material comes with its own data sheet in PDF format, which includes a DSC curve showing a heat-cool-reheat graph, characterised by peak temperatures for both heating runs, and the onset of crystallisation for the cooling runs. In the case of the recycled polyolefin material, the OIT (oxidation induction time) according to ASTM 3895 and ISO 11357-6 is given, based on a average of a minimum of five tests.
For the filler materials, TGA data curves are shown to demonstrate the material behaviour, both in air atmosphere and in nitrogen atmosphere.
Sample preparation information is included for all materials in the kit for all analyses which are included in the data sheets.
For each material, the DSC and TGA methods used to characterise that material, including the temperature program are given in the PDF documentation supplied with the material kit. FTIR Characterisation data for each material showing spectra and search data outputs is included in each data sheet.
The kit of polymer materials and fillers is priced at £200. Pricing excludes shipping and UK VAT (where applicable)
