How Quality Control and Failure Analysis of PP Effectively Prevent Scrapping of Goods

How Quality Control and Failure Analysis of PP Effectively Prevent Scrapping of Goods

Do you need a plastic part or a film with very specific properties – such as temperature stability coupled with dimensional stability accurate to a hundredth of a millimeter and UV resistance – otherwise it cannot be used for its intended purpose? But how can you check whether all requirements have been met and, in addition, how can failures be analyzed?

Good Stability Versus Good Tabletability

Good Stability Versus Good Tabletability: The Choice of Modification

Many pharmaceutical solids exhibit polymorphism, i.e., the ability of a substance to exist in different crystalline forms. The polymorphic form can have significant influence on pharmaceutical processing and can, for example, affect grinding, granulation and tabletability. A DSC measurement allows for the characterization of the present modification. Here, different modifications of paracetamol are distinguished by means of DSC.

How to use TGA for the quality control of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers

The determination of fiber volume fraction is crucial for the quality control of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRP) in order to ensure their favorable mechanical and physical properties for the use in aerospace, wind energy and automotive sectors. A new thermogravimetric testing method, published by Dominik Grund in the journal “Polymer Testing”, considers heating rate, analysis atmosphere and sample size to efficiently ensure high quality of the material. This editorial summarizes the steps for the use of TGA in the quality control of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers.
