S2 PUMA - Plastics & Polymers

Plastics & Polymers

With polymers replacing more and more conventional materials, the development of new compositions and further production control give rise to more elemental analysis applications. These can include the monitoring of modifiers and additives to give the new materials the desired properties.

Other applications include the analysis of heavy metals or that of polymer coatings. Thereby it does not matter if the sample is presented as granulate, as hot-pressed puck, or as a bulk sample such as an extruded work piece.

With the S2 PUMA Carousel all these samples can easily be handled with the same instrument, simply by removing or including the sample tray. With the small-spot collimators and the HD camera, an area of interest on a bulk sample as small as 1 mm can be analyzed.

Together with the HighSense™ LE detector even light elements can be analyzed with short measurement times.
