Plasma Biotal and Bio-PolyTec present Real-Time monitoring of Additive Dispersion.

On November 26th 2015, the Polymer Processing Research Centre (PPRC) on behalf of the Bio-PolyTec project consortium held a half-day workshop on Real-Time monitoring of Polymer Degradation and Additive dispersion during Processing. The workshop introduced novel, fibre-optic based sensors capable of monitoring physio-chemical changes in polymers and compounds in real-time during processing.

Variation in the agglomeration/dispersion of filler particles or the degradation of biodegradable polymers can be critical issues for many high-performance products but require expensive and time-consuming laboratory analysis to detect. Bio-PolyTec can help you achieve this in-process monitoring in real-time!
