Zetium - Trace element analysis of Mg, Al, P, Ca, Ti and Zn in polymers using Zetium

In the polymer industry, XRF spectroscopy is a commonly used analytical method to quantitatively determine the concentrations of additives. XRF provides important advantages compared to other more time-consuming or even destructive analytical techniques.

Currently, the European polymer industry needs to determine more than 60 chemical elements in polymer materials, in concentrations ranging from percent to the ppb levels. A variety of inorganic compounds are commonly added to polymers in order to enhance or suppress specific properties.
