Residual monomer analysis in laboratory

You wish to analyze the residual monomers of your polymer materials?

To begin with, what is a monomer? A monomer is a chemical molecule of small size and low molecular weight. It is composed of one or more functions that can bind to other organic molecules during the polymerization reaction.

Thus, a polymer is a large molecule (macromolecule) generally organic or semi organic, composed of several monomers.

Moreover, polymers are diverse: thermoplastics or thermosets (PE, PP, PET, PVC, PTFE,), composite materials, and formulations based on polymers (paints, glue, resin, varnish …).

What is the purpose of the residual monomer analysis of your materials?

It is important to note that the properties of a polymer are directly related to its composition and nature. Indeed, depending on the monomers used during polymerization, the characteristics of a polymer can change greatly.

Moreover, some monomers are toxic and many monomers promote early or accelerated degradation of the polymer.

Therefore, residual monomer analysis of your polymer products is an essential step to ensure quality and compliance.
