Multi - Characterization Protocols for New Material Development and Formulation Optimization
Today there are multiple characterization tools like DSC, DMA, FTIR, TMA etc. to either characterize materials or to solve complex formulation or processing issues. Comparative studies need to be presented that show the information that can be obtained through the use of different characterization tools and help the formulators to mix and
How to Carry Out Migration Testing and Comply with EU Food Contact Regulations for Plastics?
Food contact materials in the European Union (EU) are regulated by the Framework Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 and the GMP Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006. The Framework Regulation is implemented for plastics by the Plastics Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 and its amendments. The Plastics Regulation is the most comprehensive example of food conta
How to select catalysts smartly to improve and optimize formulations and maintain the overall cost?
Catalytic processes are the most prominent and efficient processes in polymers, manufacturing, chemicals and other sections including oil and gas. Through the continuous development of catalysts, reactions become faster and more profitable for any industry. Catalytic action is known to be affected by a number of factors
FTIR and DMA Combined Study For Quick Analysis And Faster Product Developments 2019 edition
This training is a different approach regarding not just FTIR and not just DMA, but what you can expect and achieve by combined study of FTIR and DMA. As you know that analysing samples is a combination of different techniques and in this training, instructor will show the features you will encounter in FTIR, which will be also present in
Complying with FDA Regulations for Food Contact Materials Made Easy
The FDA Regulations for food contact are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Chapter 21 Parts 170 to 199. This is a compendium of all the successful Food Additive petitions the FDA received from 1958 to 1999. Each regulation deals with a separate topic or material type and the substances listed are cleare
Hybrid-Silanes: Practical approach to improve your existing and new formulations
Imagine the problem of making a bond between two substrates or sealing a gap or protecting materials or enhancing fillers by a coating. The coating or bond should be strong enough, but on the other hand, applying the material should happen easily. You could do by different ways; solvent borne, water borne, molten state etc. But you could t
PSA Formulation Optimization, Selection and Influence of Plasticizers, Tackifiers and polymers
This training will try to reveal the working of a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) and how we can reach the right properties by using tackyfiers, plasticizers and polymers. A pressure-sensitive adhesive can be made from different materials. It can be water based, solvent based, 100%-solid based, like a hot melt, UV/EB-cured, silane cured,
