Free Collection of Drying Methods for Plastics Helps Improve Moisture Analysis Results

Nov 30 2017 Read 421 Times

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has included halogen moisture analysis as a standard test method for determination of moisture in plastics by loss in weight in designation D6980-12. However, defining a drying method that fits the standard using a halogen moisture analyser may be unfamiliar.

To aid in the process, Mettler Toledo has published a free collection of drying methods for plastics that encompasses standard methods as described by ASTM. This collection will help plastics manufacturers get started with fast, accurate halogen moisture analysis and deliver results in less time to keep up with customer demand.

Accurate moisture analysis can help provide trouble-free compounding and injection moulding, which enhances surface smoothness and helps to provide ideal mechanical properties. An ability to provide repeatable results in less time makes the Mettler Toledo HX204 halogen moisture analyser an excellent choice for providing this fast, accurate halogen moisture analysis, whether used on the factory floor or in the quality control lab.

Discover how easy it can be to determine the moisture content of plastics by downloading the free collection of drying methods.
