Particle Size Analysis of Polymers

Particle Characterization

Measuring the particle size distribution of polymeric materials provides a high degree of control over a range of product performance characteristics. Particle size determination using static light scattering (laser diffraction) is currently the most versatile and popular technique for the majority of polymeric materials. Since extruded polymer pellets can exceed the upper size limitation of laser diffraction these materials are typically measured via dynamic image analysis. The combination of laser diffraction and dynamic image analysis systems supplies a wide dynamic range (0.01 µm to 30 mm), fast material analysis, and easy data interpretation.

Particle Size Analysis of Polymers
DescriptionAs the needs of the chemical industry change and products require more detailed inspection to maximize quality and quantity, the analytical instrumentation available must adapt to fill the space. Both the LA-960 and CAMSIZER successfully meet the needs for research and routine quality control. Laser diffraction analyzers measure from nanometer to millimeter sized wet or dry dispersed polymers. Dynamic image analysis systems are preferred when product size grows and shape factors become important.
