NETZSCH introduces TGA-FT-IR Database of Polymers

The coupling of a Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA) with an FT-IR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer) has become an absolute must, especially in the polymer industry. For over 20 years now, NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH, the Analyzing & Testing business unit of the NETZSCH Group, cooperates with the well-known producer of spectrometers Bruker Optics GmbH.

The newly developed “TGA-FT-IR Database of Polymers” is a database for integration into OPUS spectra search; it contains more than 129 gas phase spectra of 88 polymers obtained by TGA-FT-IR.

The FT-IR spectra represent the composition of the evolved gases at the maximum decomposition rate (DTG peak). The database is available for NETZSCH instruments coupled to Bruker Optics - Coupling.

An offer request for the CD can be sent directly on our website.
