OVERVIEW

Discover how new titration techniques improve handling of volatile solvents used in hydroxyl number titrations and explore tips on how to preserve your electrode from the aggressive organic solvents and heat often required for acid number titrations. Quality of polymer products is determined by key parameters such as moisture, hydroxyl number, and acid value. These parameters are important as they impact both the appearance and functional properties of final products. When one of these parameters is outside of specifications, quick action is necessary to avoid discarding valuable raw material. Knowing how to address analysis of water in a slow-releasing polymer is crucial to achieving reproducible and reliable results.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

- Understand the importance and challenges with analyzing polymers for water, hydroxyl number, and acid value.

- Review key principles in titration affecting these polymer applications.

- Learn the latest techniques for improved titration results.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • • QC/QA, R&D and Process Development Lab Managers and Users
  •  
  • • People involved in the process monitoring of polymers, plastics, resins, and films
  •  
  • • Anyone interested in the latest developments in titration applications for the polymer industry
