Rethink Moisture Analysis for Polymer, Resin and Solvent Samples



  August 30, 2018

  11:00 a.m. PDT / 2:00 p.m. EDT / 19:00 BST / 20:00 CEST




There are several techniques available for moisture analysis - not all are created equal. Depending on the approach, results may vary. Are you confident your results are accurate and represent both free and bound moisture? Karl Fischer titration is the only technique that is chemically specific for moisture and is flexible enough to be used on solids, liquids and gases. With a few simple guidelines, the headaches of moisture analysis on solid pellets, sticky resins and hygroscopic solvents can be eliminated.

Join us to learn more about Karl Fischer titration and how you should be rethinking moisture analysis in your lab. Hear from John Duvall, an instrument, test procedures and quality expert at Wacker Chemical, on the importance of accurate moisture analysis in process control. Dr. Kerri-Ann Blake, Product Specialist at Metrohm, will provide some expert tips on sample preparation and reagent selection for difficult polymer and resin samples.
