Elemental analysis on plastics by XRF
By measuring the characteristics and intensity of the emitted light upon irradiation of the sample with X-rays (so-called X-ray fluorescence or XRF), it is possible to identify and quantify which elements are present in your polymer in a non-destructive way. Although elements like Calcium (and lighter) cannot be detected due to low X-ray yields, XRF is very suitable to detect inorganic fillers and impurities such as residual catalysts or heavy metals.
Please include information on the chemical nature (e.g. PP, PE, PET, PA,..) of your polymer with your order.
