B&W Tek Inc. and Gnosys Global Ltd. have introduced the PolymerIQ software for real-time nondestructive identification and quantification of polymers. Combining B&W Tek's i-Raman high-resolution portable Raman spectrometer system with Gnosys' PolymerIQ chemometric software, users can perform multivariate statistical analysis to relate all available spectral information to the chemistry, properties and metrics of interest with the click of a button. Working with major additive producers, Gnosys developed PolymerIQ to deliver rapid measurement of polymers and additives. The rapid analysis reduces the need for more laborious analytical methods and enables a more intelligent approach for the reuse of material test data. When used with the i-Raman, PolymerIQ's analysis introduces greater speed and cost efficiency into the routine inspection of master batches and compounds during production.
